The Best E-Cycling Day Yet

Better late than never!  On October 20th, we hosted our annual free Electronics Recycling (“E-Cycling”) Day, which was postponed due to the COVID-19 quarantine this past Spring. Happily, the change in dates didn’t affect the popularity of the event. Tenants at Great Oaks Office Park and our Wolf Road/Winners Circle properties recycled over 7,000 pounds of unwanted electronics like computers, printers, monitors, peripherals, batteries, and cell phones, making this year’s event our most successful since we held the first E-Cycling Day in 2015!

Environmental stewardship is central to our entire real estate practice and realized through a three-pronged “Place, Performance and People” approach.  The latter, “People” focuses on empowering tenants to be more sustainable by providing environmentally-friendly amenities and services like indoor bicycle storage/repair, EV charging stations, integrated alternative transit/micro-mobility options, and of course, electronics recycling.

According to The Global E-Waste Monitor 2020, over 59 million tons of electronics were discarded worldwide in 2019, up 21 percent in five years. Our tenants benefit from safely decluttering their offices and homes, and we all benefit by preventing harmful chemicals like mercury from entering the waste stream!
