Recycling Program


As a LEED Gold building, 20 South Clark is committed to “Recycling at the Speed of Green!”

We at 20 South Clark want to encourage all of tenants to reduce, reuse and recycle where possible. To make recycling easy and convenient for all building tenants deskside containers have been provided for each employee in addition to recycling containers for kitchens and break rooms.

  • Paper & Cardboard Recycling all "mixed fibers" includes paper, glossy paper, newspaper, magazines, cardboard (non-coated), envelopes, brochures, post-it notes, blue prints and manila folders. Blue deskside and copy room recycling containers have been provided, free of charge, by the Building Management Office. Additional containers may be requested through the Service Request System.
  • Bottle & Can Recycling includes all aluminum cans, steel cans, bi-metal cans and glass (clear, brown, green, blue) and plastic bottles. Bottles and cans should be deposited in a separate recycle bin from paper recyclables. Large blue containers for bottle and can recycling are centralized and available in all kitchens.
  • Electronics Recycling. Our e-waste vendor, Ecotronix ensures your e-waste will be disposed of in a manner that complies with all federal and state regulations. For a list of accepted items, click the vendor logo.
  • Toner Recycling – A laser cartridge thrown into a landfill can take up to 450 years to decompose and some components take over 1,000 years. We can reduce landfilling by recycling our toner cartridges.
  • Battery Recycling – Batteries contain corrosive materials and heavy metals that pose serious threats to human health and the environment. Together, we can keep our batteries out of landfills, where heavy metals may leak into the ground when the battery casing corrodes, causing soil and water pollution, and out of the incinerator where the heavy metals in them may cause air pollution.
  • Light Bulb Recycling – We recycle light bulbs because recycling prevents the release of mercury into the environment. CFLs and other fluorescent bulbs often break when thrown into a dumpster, trash can or compactor, or when they end up in a landfill or incinerator. Other materials in the bulbs get reused. Recycling CFLs and other fluorescent bulbs allows the reuse of the glass, metals and other materials that make up fluorescent lights. Virtually all components of a fluorescent bulb can be recycled.

Recycling is easy! Simply log in to the Tenant Portal Service Request System to request a pick-up of your electronics, toner or battery recycling or simply bring your recyclables to the Office of the Building – Suite 1075.
