The janitors remove standard
desk side waste receptacles five nights per week.
Trash in amounts greater than ordinary desk-side
receptacles will be removed by the janitors upon
request of property management for an additional
charge. A waste company picks up the building trash
approximately two to three times per month. The current
charge for each “pull” is
based on tonnage and recycle content. Any Tenant
who generates an excessive amount of trash due to
move-in, move-out or spring cleaning activities will
be charged a pro rata share of the “pull” fee.
In a constant effort to continually improve our
recycling at 199 Fremont Street, we have met with
Golden Gate Disposal and added an improvement to
our current system effective June 2, 2008.
We are going to change our compactor to a commingled
program which will allow us to place recyclables
along with standard trash in the same compactor.
Standard desk garbage cans will continue to be picked
up in clear liners and placed in the compactor, while
recyclables will now be able to be placed loose in
the compactor as long as they are not contained in
The janitorial staff will continue to empty your
trash and your current recycling bins, but they will
now change how they dispose of them when they reach
the loading dock. Recycling bins will still only
be emptied as necessary.
In addition, you will no longer need to sort your
paper, bottles, cans, and plastic since they all
will be placed in the same location. While the bottles,
cans, and plastics need to be empty as before, they
now can be combined with the paper if you find that
is an easier process for your employees. However,
there is no need to change your current process of
separating the bottles, cans, and plastics from the
paper if you feel the process is functioning fine.
The procedure for cardboard boxes will remain the same.
Please continue to break them down and leave the boxes
at the freight elevator labeled trash or basura.
