ICGT & NYCHA
BUILDING A LONG-AWAITED PARTNERSHIP
In 2015, NYCHA Recycles! was launched. It included installing communal recycling bins outside in clusters between buildings. The bins are inconveniently located, and residents must make a special trip in order to recycle. As a consequence, residents are more apt to use the trash chute on their floor than to
take the elevator down and walk their recycling outside. NYCHA generates approximately 114 million pounds of recyclables each year. Currently, their recycling rate is only 1.5%, but ICGT has partnered with the Authority to increase residential recycling.
THE NYCHA & ICGT PARTNERSHIP
A Change Has Finally Come!
Vlada Kenniff - VP of Energy and Sustainability, Capital Projects Division, at NYCHA makes the exciting announcement about the partnership.
The "Breath of Fresh Air", Greg Russ, and the new Chair of NYCHA is all in to make massive changes to how NYCHA manages its waste. Russ saw the promise of ICGT's vision to improve recycling, create green jobs, and increase civic engagement.
