Proper Disposal of Recyclables and Refuse
Posted By flanglois on July 11, 2018
We’ve received complaints that garbage bags are being left in refuse rooms creating an unsanitary situation. Here’s a friendly reminder concerning the proper disposal of garbage and boxes. Garbage bags should be disposed of in the trash chute of the refuse room located on each floor.
How to operate the trash chute :
1. Press the black button
2. Turn the handle clockwise
If the chute is busy, please wait. If the chute is not operating, please contact the Front Desk. Boxes and large cardboard pieces are not to be forced into the chute. They should be walked down to the Recycling Room, broken down and disposed of in the bins. The Recycling Room is located on the first floor across from the elevator vestibule. Please instruct your guests and housekeepers on the proper use of the garbage chute and the recycling room.
Please don’t leave bags of garbage or boxes on the floor of the refuse room. Please don’t place garbage bags, boxes, water bottles or other obstructions in the hallway outside your door. In the event of an emergency, clear hallways are needed for a safe exit. This will also keep things safe and sanitary and reduce the chance of a build up of garbage and its odor will becoming a nuisance.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
