Diamond Properties Collects Nearly 8,000 Pounds Of E-Waste

Diamond Properties recently celebrated Earth Day with its annual collection drive of recyclable electronics from its tenants, an effort originally inspired by Diamond’s participation in the Westchester Green Business Challenge (WGBC).

In 2014 the WBGC, an initiative to move companies toward cost-effective environmental sustainability, motivated Diamond Properties to start the collection drive. The requirements of one of the challenge’s categories, Materials Management/Waste & Recycling, were met by having employees bring in electronics from their homes to complement the office recycling program for tenants.

Because of the success of the program, the company decided to repeat the event for its tenants every year. In 2015, Diamond Properties collected and recycled 4,372 pounds of electronics. This year, the Diamond Properties team visited 15 properties throughout the week gathering recyclables and collected 7, 912 lbs of electronics.

“Our goal in 2016 was to exceed the collection amount and unexpectedly we doubled our number,” said Laressa GJonaj, Marketing Manager for Diamond Properties.
