Welcome NewsletterLorem Ipsum Spring 2016, Issue 4Going Green saves Bayside GreenbacksBayside is the Gold standard for high‐rise recycling in the City of San Diego. The Association haswon five consecutive years of recycling awards from the City. The program requires a little effortbut in essence is quite simple.1. A 33 Gallon recycle bin is on every floor for small co‐mingled recyclables.2. A small purple bin is on every floor to receive compact fluorescent lights and batteries (Thesecannot be recycled and are not permitted in the general trash.)3. Large recyclables are taken to the main trash room on the ground floor ‐ also co‐mingled.4. Moving boxes of various sizes in good condition are kept aside and stored for re‐use duringmove out or for additional storage and are available to residents free of charge on request.5. Styrofoam peanuts and bubble wrap are also saved for re‐use.6. Four separate bins are in the ground floor trash room: "ʺE"ʺ waste, batteries, Styrofoam peanuts,plastic shopping bags and hazardous waste such as paint, thinners etc.7. The manager delivers the plastic shopping bags to a number of thrift stores so (a) they save thethrift store the cost of purchase and (b) they get re--‐‑used before being recycled8. Clothing and household items are collected and when there is enough to fill at least 1/3 of atruck they are offered rotationally to Goodwill, the Rescue Mission, Father Joe or SalvationArmy.A simple program that saves us money --‐‑ Our trash collection bill has come down from $2400 permonth mid‐2009 to a current $719 per month, all because of homeowner recycling efforts. Join us.We save green by Going Green.
