24 October 2011 Towne Park’s “Great Race to Recycle”
Towne Park is leading a race to recycle tickets, bottles, cans and other waste generated at work sites nationwide
Towne Park valets over 6 million vehicles annually using a multi-part ticket for each vehicle parked. The company estimates 28,751,605 pieces of paper are generated annually totaling approximately 57.5 tons. On Earth Day this past spring, the company’s green council “TowneGreen” officially launched an account level recycling program to reduce negative environmental impact. The program not only focuses on tickets, but on other recyclables generated in each market.
While hundreds of locations have successfully implemented this recycling program since, Towne Park’s Seattle, Portland, San Francisco Bay Area, Lake Tahoe, Philadelphia, and Boston locations were the first markets to be 100% compliant. We look forward to announcing other markets around the country as they meet our 100% compliance standard.
“Once Portland and Seattle had fully implemented the program, we had leaders in other markets that were racing to be next. We currently have Baltimore and DC in the process. Our site leaders have realized just how much more in alignment they are with their clients by recycling. They’ve also found associates that are passionate about making a difference.”
