Emergency Procedures: Introduction
This Facility Emergency Plan is endorsed by the San Francisco Fire Department. It is the approved plan to
be employed in the event of emergency by the Building Management and Life Safety Team at 45 Fremont.
Should an emergency occur, for the sake of everyone’s safety, the guidelines in this manual should be
followed as closely as possible. Please review the Tenant Emergency Communication Guide for further
details on how to receive building information during an emergency
Everyone has been affected in some way by the dreadful events of September 11 and subsequently the
current state of the world and our nation. While we have attempted to address everything reasonably
conceivable, it is impossible to plan for (or prevent) every type of disaster.
Please realize that the following Facility Emergency Plan is meant to guide you through “normal” emergency
procedures. Of course the actual execution of the plan would depend on the situation itself. To that end,
please always use your best judgment and common sense, and try to remain calm and orderly in any type of
emergency situation that may arise.
“As required by Title 19, California Code of Regulations, California Fire Code, California Health & Safety
Code, and the San Francisco Fire Code, an emergency plan shall be prepared, implemented, maintained,
and annually reviewed for this building.”
Building Information
Opened in 1978, 45 Fremont Street is a 34-story, 588,000 square-foot office tower constructed of steel and
concrete. Nineteen high-speed elevators grouped in three banks provide access to the low-, mid-and
high-rise floors. In addition, a freight elevator serves the tower and shuttle elevator provides service
between the lobby and the basement.
Zones on each floor direct a thermostatically controlled air conditioning and heating system.
A Life Safety System incorporates smoke detectors and sprinklers throughout the building. More information
on the Life Safety System is explained on the following pages.
An emergency generator provides power for emergency lighting, limited elevator service, and the Life Safety
System with emergency communications.
Emergency Procedures
Fortunately, emergencies do not occur very often, but should an urgent situation arise, this information will
enable us to assist each other through an emergency.
In an emergency situation, there will be a coordinated effort between Tenants, Building Management, and
the Fire and Police Departments. Success of an emergency procedure is dependent on advanced planning
and training. With everyone’s cooperation, we can minimize panic and confusion and keep everyone safe.
Fire & Other Disasters
The plan is to establish a safe and orderly method of moving people away from a fire area, or entirely out of
the building, to a safe location.
The capacity to move people from offices and entire floors in the event of an emergency rests with the FIRE
SAFETY DIRECTOR and the FLOOR WARDENS. Upon arrival to the scene, The San Francisco FIRE
DEPARTMENT has total authority for relocating people and for evacuating all or part of the building.

Emergency Procedures: Safety Features
The high-rise building has the best safety record of any type structure and 45 Fremont is designed to be one
of the safest high-rises of its kind. The building is a steel and concrete structure enveloped in aluminum,
constructed in accordance with all fire and earthquake codes. The building is fully sprinklered and features a
modern electronic Life Safety System that provides for the safe movement of employees during an
Sensors & Alarms
Smoke sensors are located throughout each floor to continually measure for products of combustion. When
a sensor is activated, the Life Safety System will transmit a high-pitched warbling sound on the affected
Manual alarm pull stations are also located near the stairwells and in the elevator lobbies on each floor. See
the floor plans for the locations in Appendix 2 of this manual. Activating these will cause a similar response
to that created by the smoke sensors.
When an alarm is activated, a signal is automatically sent to a central reporting station that immediately
summons the Fire Department. This ensures that the Fire Department responds as quickly as possible.
The building is fully sprinklered. If the temperature becomes hot enough at an individual sprinkler head, it
will go off. Only that sprinkler head will be activated; the surrounding sprinkler heads will only activate when
the temperature at the head reaches the preset temperature.
Fire Extinguishers
There are at least four fire extinguishers on each floor, one located at each corner of the building’s exit
corridor, for emergency use. Each fire extinguisher is the “A.B.C” dry chemical type. These should only be
used by individuals who have been properly trained.
Exit Stairwells
Two enclosed stairwells give direct access to the street level and are located at the north and south ends of
the building. These stairwells are designed to withstand fire for two hours. Red telephones to contact
Security are in the stairwells on every other floor.
Public Address System
Ceiling speakers are located on every floor in the stairwells and will be used to communicate information to
Tenants concerning the nature of the problem and to give special instructions. Please follow these
directions. Scroll down for sample announcements.
Emergency Power & Water
An emergency power generator is present and will supply energy for emergency lighting, limited elevator
service and paging capabilities.
A reserve water supply is ready and available for use in the sprinkler system if necessary. It is strongly
recommended that tenants have enough emergency supplies (food, water, first aid) for each employee for
three days.
Each elevator is equipped with an emergency intercom connected to the lobby security panel. It will be
possible for the lobby Security to speak to you in any elevator where there might be a problem.
During an emergency when the smoke detectors in an elevator lobby are activated, all elevators in that bank
will be recalled to the lobby level automatically. The elevators may then be used by the Fire Department.
Fire Windows (break-away windows), made of safety glass are at specific locations on the east side of the
building. These are ONLY for the FIRE DEPARTMENT’S USE in an EMERGENCY. Each fire window is
marked with a red reflector button for easy recognition. Tenants must not remove or tamper with these
Smoke Control System
The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) have a smoke control system, which ensures that the
dampers operate in such a way as to prevent more smoke from entering the floors.
Below are examples of the types of announcements you may hear over the Public Address System in the
event of an emergency, Life Safety System testing, or a false alarm:
Relocation Announcement
Relocation Floors 8 and above will hear: Attention. Attention. May I have your attention please. We have an
emergency on the ___ floor. Please move to the exit stairwells, slowly walk down four floors and re-enter the
building. Do not use the elevators.
Relocation Floors 7 and below will hear: Attention. Attention. May I have your attention please. We have an
emergency on the ___floor. Please move to the exit stairwells and slowly walk down the stairs to the
relocation site outside of the building.
Receiving Floors will hear: Attention. Attention. May I have your attention please. We have an alarm on one
of the upper floors. Please prepare to receive relocating persons on your floor.
Earthquake Announcement
Attention. Attention. May I have your attention please. We have just experienced an earthquake. Please
remain calm and stay away from the perimeter windows. An announcement will follow shortly.
False Alarm Announcement
(only made under Fire Department authorization) Attention. Attention. May I have your attention please.
The alarm experienced was false. Relocated persons from the above floors may now return to their
workstations. Please use the elevators when returning to your floor.

Emergency Procedures: Organization and Responsibilities
Once the Fire Department arrives on the scene, they will assume responsibility for the suppression of the
fire and the safe relocation of all people. Prior to the Fire Department’s arrival, the responsibility for reporting
the fire to the San Francisco Fire Department, the attempt to extinguish the fire, and the movement of
employees rests with the Tenant Floor Wardens and the Building Fire Safety Director.
In the event of fire or other disaster, The Command Post for the San Francisco Fire Department, 45
Fremont Fire Safety Director, Property Manager and Building Engineers , will be the Firemen’s Control
Center (FCC), which is located in the Building’s main lobby on the ground level.
The 45 Fremont Fire Safety Director is, Assistant Chief Engineer, Todd Edwards. The Deputy Fire Safety
Director is Chief Engineer, David Kent. The Deputy Fire Safety Director will assume the duties of the Fire
Safety Director in his absence. The primary non-emergency responsibilities of the Fire Safety Director are:
Implement and maintain the Facility Emergency Plan
Organize, train, and direct activities of the Floor Teams & Building Staff
Make decisions and recommendations about emergency procedures
Facilitate and keep log of building fire drills
Keep building keys, floor-plans and disabled occupants list accessible and current
Inspect and maintain Life Safety equipment
Each Tenant will establish a Floor Warden System for each floor of occupancy to handle emergency
situations. Floor Wardens will be appointed by the Tenants and given responsibility to coordinate fire
emergency procedures with other Tenants on their floor and in cooperation with the Fire Safety Director and
Fire Department. Tenants are responsible for keeping their floor warden and emergency contact information
current with Building Management.
Tenant Emergency Teams
The size and configuration of each Tenant Warden System will vary, depending on the size and
configuration of the floor(s) occupied. The Team should include the following:
Floor Warden(s)
Alternate Floor Warden(s)
Stair/Exit Wardens
Elevator Safety Monitors
Search Person(s)
Floor Wardens
The Floor Wardens are responsible for the safety of all persons, including visitors on their floor and must be
familiar with all emergency exits, fire stairways, emergency phone numbers, relocation routes and all
emergency procedures. Floor Wardens shall maintain order and help everyone remain calm.
The daily responsibilities of the Floor Warden are:
Appoint Area Wardens, assign Stair Exit Wardens, Elevator Safety Monitors and a Search Team
Be completely familiar with the floor arrangement, the number of floor occupants and the location of
the floor exits.
On a daily basis, examine and determine that all fire doors to stairs are properly maintained and that
exit doors are not obstructed, blocked open, or inoperable.
Maintain a current listing of all identified personnel who cannot use the stair exits without assistance.
Solicit voluntary aides to assist them when an evacuation is directed. Ensure that Building
Management always has current list for Fire Department use.
During an Emergency the Floor Warden must:
Convey confidence and direction to prevent confusion among personnel.
Assure that all persons on the floor are notified of a fire or other emergency and that, if necessary, all
are evacuated to a safe area.
Delegate Team Members to begin search, relocation, etc.
Stair/Exit Wardens
Under the direction of the Floor Warden, Stair/Exit Wardens assist in monitoring stairwells and exits,
directing people along pre-planned evacuation routes.
Elevator Safety Monitors
Under the direction of the Floor Warden, Elevator Safety Monitors shall station themselves at the elevators
to ensure that no one uses the elevators, and direct people to the stairwells.
Search Team
Under the direction of the Floor Warden, the Search Team will check all restrooms, offices, conference
rooms, closets, etc. to assure that everyone has relocated, and report “All Clear” to the Floor Warden.
POSITIVE LEADERSHIP GUIDELINES Inform your personnel what is expected of them in an emergency.
Exemplify strong, competent leadership. Be prepared to:
Remove the injured from public view.
Clear away debris that may impede evacuation.
Quickly control small fire --nothing bigger than trashcan fire --if possible.
Take command and issue calm, decisive instructions. Do not be emotional. Provide assurance. Exert
positive leadership. Dispel rumors.

Emergency Procedures: Relocations
The way to leave a fire area is to walk, not run, down the stairs to a safe place. In a high-rise building, such
as 45 Fremont, only a certain number of people can pass down a flight of stairs, and through a door, within a
given period of time.
The Fire Department and the Fire Safety Director have total control of whom and when to relocate floors
other than the emergency floor. The Floor Warden and/or the Fire Safety Director should move people away
from the emergency floor to a designated relocation area. As soon as an alarm is heard, relocation should
In the event that relocation is required, four (4) floors are relocated down (With the exception of the 34th
floor which relocates 5 floors down): the emergency floor, the floor above the emergency floor and two (2)
floors below the emergency floor. For example, if a fire occurs on the 10th floor, floors 8, 9, 10, and 11
would relocate, 4 floors down, as shown in the diagram.
The stairwells have colored symbols, such as those in the diagram, that repeat every four floors. Look for
the symbol that matches the one on the floor you departed.
The floors 11, 10, 9, and 8, in the above illustration, would relocate to floors 7, 6, 5, and 4, respectively. The
receiving floors will be advised and prepared to receive people from the floors being relocated.
Floors 7 and below should relocate outside to the street level. Do not go down into the basement, or the
This relocation procedure will avoid disorder in the stairwells and street and keep the access open for
emergency personnel to get through. Additionally, each floor is fire-rated for at least one hour, thereby
keeping people several floors away quite safe for a period of time.
It is important to stay towards the wall as you descend, and then enter the floor where you are relocating to
await further instructions. The fire department will arrive within a few minutes and will be using the stairwells
to fight the fire. It is important that the stairwells are clear when the fire department arrives so their efforts
are not hindered.
When directed to relocate from your floor, please follow these guidelines:
Do not panic; remain calm and orderly.
Walk, do not run and stay towards the wall.
Do not use elevators.
If exposed to heat or smoke, stay low to the floor.
Do not open doors that feel hot.
Do not prop open stairwell doors.
Do not return to an evacuated area, for any reason, until authorized to do so.
If trapped you will need to “defend in place”. Follow these guidelines:
Seal doors and transoms with wet towels
Call 9-1-1 to report location and condition
Do not break windows unless in absolute danger of smoke inhalation
Hang bright object in window
Breathe through wet towel and keep low to the floor
If trapped in a smoke-filled room, crawl to a safe area and try to get into an enclosed stairway or smoke-free
Relocation of Non-Ambulatory and Physically Disabled
In the event it becomes necessary to relocate certain floors within the building, or evacuate the entire
building, it is essential to have a plan to assist physically disabled personnel. The following outlines the
responsibilities of the Emergency Team in the event relocation or evacuation becomes necessary.
The Tenant must inform Building Manager of any identified disabled employees who may require additional
assistance in the event of an emergency, and maintain a current list on file, noting any changes, with
Building Management. This confidential list will be kept on file in the management office, and with the Fire
Safety Director.
Prior to an emergency, the Floor Warden must encourage employees who feel they may have difficulty
exiting the floor quickly in an emergency to select a willing aide and an alternate to assist them, each should
be informed of their responsibilities.
If relocation or evacuation is necessary, the disabled individuals are to be assisted by the selected
personnel and taken to the first landing in the stairwell, out of the way of the flow of traffic. Wheel chairs are
to be left outside of the stairwells. The Floor Warden is to inform the Fire Safety Director or Building
Manager of the location of the individual(s) during an emergency.
If it is not possible to relocate, the aide shall assist in the afore-mentioned “defend in place” procedures.

Emergency Procedures: Fire Provisions
If you discover a fire, activate the pull station located in the elevator lobby or by the stairwell doors. Get to a
safe location and report the fire to the San Francisco Fire Department, phone 9-1-1 or 415-558-3200. Then
notify the Building Office, or Security if after-hours. Building Office telephone is 415-512-1080, if after-hours,
dial 0 during the message to reach Security. Never assume that someone else has, or will, report the
An intermittent high-pitched warbling noise will sound on your floor. Relocation should commence at that
time. Follow instructions described in Relocation Procedures.
Floor Wardens should first make sure the fire has properly been reported, and then supervise the immediate
relocation of personnel from the floor. Personnel familiar and trained in the use of fire extinguishers should
attempt to extinguish SMALL MANAGEABLE FIRES only (no larger than a trash can) and if safe to do so.
Do NOT allow the fire to get between you and your means of escape.
To use a fire extinguisher:
Ensure the alarm has been sounded
Check the fire extinguisher – is it the proper type and in good condition?
Carry extinguisher to fire, pull ring and aim at the base of the fire.
Crouch low, squeeze handle and sweep from side to side in an upward motion.
Remain calm. Follow instructions of your Floor Warden. Listen for emergency communications through the
Public Address System. Follow instructions from Fire Department or Fire Safety Director. Unless you have
something to report, do NOT tie up phone lines.
DO NOT USE ELEVATORS. Walk to the stairwell exits. In emergency situations, elevators will be used only
by the Fire Department. When an alarm occurs, all elevators serving that area will be recalled to the lobby
and shut off.
Assist disabled personnel. Assign at least two people to help move them to a safe area. The Fire
Department will also help, provided Building Management has been advised of name(s) and location(s).
DO NOT OPEN HOT DOORS. Before opening any door, touch it near the top, with the back of your hand to
see if it is hot. A fire on the other side will blast through the slightest opening with tremendous force and
Falling glass is a serious threat to people below.
The Building Fire Safety Director will ensure that the fire department has been notified, elevators are
recalled to ground level and that all keys, floor-plans, and the disabled list are readily available for the fire
department, and will work with the Floor Wardens to facilitate relocation/evacuation. He will prepare the
entrance for emergency response, communicate situation details with the fire department and instruct
Security to make emergency public address announcements.
False Alarms
On rare occasions, a smoke detector or other alarm may malfunction and activate when there is no fire or
other emergency. Until the source of the alarm is investigated and confirmed to be false, the alarm must be
treated as real. Relocation procedures may be implemented for your safety, follow the instructions given
over the public address system.
Fire Prevention Measures
Do not accumulate discarded files and paper trash in your office or storage areas. Pay special attention to
housekeeping in areas that produce a lot of trash, such as copy areas and mailrooms.
Keep your electrical appliances and electrical cords in good repair. Inspect all electrical cords for damage.
Do not overload electrical outlets; the use of extension cords and space heaters is prohibited. Do not store
large quantities of flammable solvents or duplication fluids. Store all flammable fluids in a well-marked, safe,
cool location.
When furnishing the office, consider the potential for toxic gas, smoke, and flames which synthetic materials
can produce. Check on the safety and fire resistance of each material selected in your office.
In areas of increased fire danger, install extra fire extinguishers.

Emergency Procedures: Earthquake
Earthquake Preparedness
Keep an earthquake preparedness kit on hand. Include the following:
Food and water – minimum 3 day supply (7 day supply ideal for each employee)
First Aid kit and First Aid manual
Large and small heavy-duty plastic bags, duct tape and scissors
Extra prescriptions and eyewear
Heavy-duty shoes and gloves
Extra clothing

Portable TV and/or radio with extra batteries
Flashlight and extra batteries
Cash (ATMs and credit cards may not work)
Emergency Phone List including family at work, school, daycare, etc.
Long-distance message check-in phone number
Cell phone
During an Earthquake
Most injuries resulting from an earthquake are caused by falling objects or debris dislodged by the quake.
During an earthquake, observe the following:
Take cover under tables, desks, or strong doorways.
Remain calm, do not panic.
Stay in office area.
Keep away from windows and glass doors.
Keep clear of filing cabinets, shelves and tall stacks of materials.
Check for any injured personnel and administer first aid where necessary.
Floor Wardens should check damage and injuries and be prepared to expedite evacuation of serious
In the event of a fire resulting from an earthquake, follow the fire emergency procedures.
Elevators are equipped with seismic detectors and when activated will automatically stop at the nearest
floor. People in an elevator during such time should exit the car and follow instructions from the Floor
Following an Earthquake
Be prepared for aftershocks. Generally, the aftershocks are smaller than the main quake, however,
some may be large enough to cause additional damage.
If you smell gas, notify the Building Office or Security immediately.
Check immediate location – make sure you are safe.
Check for injuries and apply first aid as needed. Be prepared to go without emergency services and
help yourself and others.
Extinguish any fires; do not light matches or smoke.
Listen for news or instructions on radio or television.
Do not use the telephone unless for dire emergencies; make certain that all telephone receivers on
are on their phone cradles.
Ration food and water.

Emergency Procedures: Medical Emergencies
If you, or someone in your area, need(s) immediate medical attention, inform the nearest person to phone
9-1-1 for help; if no one is around, dial 9-1-1 from the closest telephone. Be sure to give the operator:
Your name
The building name and address
Your floor and location
Your telephone number
Inform Building Management or Security that you have called 9-1-1 and that an emergency team will be
arriving; give them your name, phone number and location so they can recall an elevator and guide the
response team to the correct place.
Emergency Procedures: Bomb Threat
Because not all bomb threats are the same, good judgment and the cooperation of employees are
especially necessary. A particular area or floor, a number of floors, or possibly the entire building may have
to be relocated in the event of a bomb threat.
In the event that a bomb threat is phoned into your office, it is imperative that the person receiving the threat
not risk breaking the telephone connection by attempting to transfer the call. Have someone else call 9-1-1
to report the call. The call should be extended for as long as possible, gathering as much information as
possible and perhaps having the call traced. Click here to download Bomb Threat Checklist.
Immediate arbitrary relocation or evacuation is not recommended. If the City Police or Fire Department
suggest that you evacuate your area due to a bomb threat, it is important to have personnel first make a
visual search of their own desks and surrounding areas. Since the employees are familiar with the
workplace surroundings and what belongs (or doesn’t belong) there they are more likely to be able to
identify any unusual items. Suspicious items could include boxes, cigarette packs, bags or purses, etc. If a
suspicious item is located, do not touch it or cover it.
In case of an evacuation due to a bomb threat, the elevators can be used. However, in the case of a bomb
explosion or fire, you should not use elevators, unless specifically instructed by Fire Department or Police to
do so. It is also good practice to assign someone to make a final inspection of the area to be sure everyone
has been relocated.
Building Management will quickly make a search of the public areas involved. They will also assist the
Police and Fire Departments in searching the Tenant areas. Whenever possible, the Tenant should have
representatives available to assist with the search of areas requested.
The Bomb Threat Checklist can be found by clicking here. Please be sure that all employees have the
checklist handy at their desks. As much detail as possible should be recorded and all descriptions that apply
should be checked off or circled.

Emergency Procedures: Toxic Hazards
If there is a toxic spill or exposure, immediately get to an area where you are not exposed and call 9-1-1.
Give building address, floor and phone number, and also what type of spill. Take action to contain the
hazard; close doors behind you, and always follow all safety procedures when working with toxic materials.
MSDS: The building Engineering Department keeps an MSDS (Material Safety and Data Sheet) log on file
for all chemicals used in the building. It lists what is in the products, possible side effects from exposure, and
First Aid for exposure, ingestion, inhalation, etc. Tenants are encouraged to maintain an MSDS log of all
materials used on their premises and made available to all employees. MSDS sheets are widely available
for just about any product you can think of, even whiteout and dish detergent. Just contact the company that
manufactures the products.
Emergency Procedures: Civil Disturbances
Do not go through an unruly crowd to exit or enter the building. If there is violence involved, call 9-1-1 and
inform of the situation, and answer questions asked by the operator. Inform Building Management or
Security that you have called 9-1-1.

According to the United States Green Building Council (“USGBC”), the commercial office buildings
generate 18% of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.
Electricity is one of the largest expenses tenants incur.
It is estimated that 50-55,000 species of life are going extinct every year due to a lack of resources
left available to them resulting from humans’ use of resources.
Every living system on the planet is in decline—none are stable.
The reduction of emissions is not only crucial for the health of the planet but also for a company’s
bottom line.
What are We Doing?
Shorenstein signed up in 2008 to take the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) 7
Point Challenge, which primarily involves a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 30% by the
year 2012. See the following link for more information on the BOMA 7 Point Challenge.

processed the following business day. Please note that access cards are not transferable.
Access card requests must be submitted through Workspeed, under the Security category by an authorized

Security Badge Office, Suite 1960 during scheduled photo sessions (Tuesday between 10:00am - 12:00pm
and Thursday between 1:00pm - 3:00pm). Building Security will then keep the card on file at the front lobby
console for tenant pick-up the following morning.
Lost or stolen access cards and terminated employees should be reported immediately. The Building Office
can provide you with a list of active access cards for your company. We will make every effort to distribute
active lists at least once a year but please feel free to request this list whenever you see fit. We need your
cooperation in maintaining an updated database.
Security: Vendors & Guests
If your off-site employees, guests, and vendors need access on an “as-needed” basis, please enter the
visitor information in Workspeed. The information is transmitted to the Security console on a real-time basis.
Upon arrival, the visitor will need to check in with Security and show picture ID. They will be issued a
temporary badge, valid for that day.
If a visitor’s name is not entered into Workspeed, Security will call either the guest’s contact or the main
tenant for instructions. If the contact gives verbal approval for the guest to have access to the tenant space,
Security will create a badge and will direct the visitor to the proper elevator bank. If the contact advises that
an escort is needed, Security will advise the guest accordingly, and issue the guest a badge once the escort
has arrived in the lobby. There is no “ongoing” guest or employees list.
For large visitor requests of 10 or more individuals, a tenant representative must be present in the Lobby to
meet and escort the group to the tenant floor.
A list of regular vendors can be provided to the Building Office so that on-going deliveries can be
If you have any questions regarding Workspeed, please contact the Building Office.
Security: Deliveries & Moves
All deliveries must come through the loading dock (except for messengers and non-cart food delivery) and

list of regular vendors previously submitted to the Building Office, Security will allow access. If they are not
on the list, you will need to contact the Tenant Services Coordinator and make arrangements 48 hours in
advance for access.
Note: Pallet Jacks are NOT permitted in the Building at any time. For deliveries of heavy equipment, the
delivery company must make arrangements to off-load the items onto smaller, more manageable carts
before taking them into the Freight Elevator.

Security: Lock-outs
If you are locked out of your suite or office or forgot your keys during business hours, please get in touch

service request, a description of the service needed, the exact location and a contact person. Once entered
into Workspeed, the Building Office receives this information and dispatches the service request to the
appropriate maintenance staff. When a job is finished, the service request is summarized and closed out or
charged back to the tenant. Every step of the service request can be tracked in Workspeed. If the request is
beyond what is included per terms of your lease, a cost quote may need to be approved prior to work being
Response times will vary according to the number and complexity of service requests received. In the case
of a building emergency or special project, which would delay response to your request, we will inform you

lease provisions.

Services: Recycling
Why we recycle
Environmental conservation -one ton of paper manufactured from waste paper conserves 17 trees!
Air and Water Pollution Prevention – the production of recycled paper produces 60% less air and
water pollution than that of virgin paper production.
Energy Conservation -Each ton of paper recycled saves the energy equivalent of 380 gallons of oil.
Landfill Considerations – Recycling reduces our reliance on already scarce landfill resources. The
City has mandated that businesses increase their recycling by 50%.
Economic Incentive – By increasing recycling we are able to decrease the amount of un-recyclable
garbage, thereby reducing scavenger fees for a savings passed onto Tenants!
Feel free to contact the Building Office for a list of vendors that recycle old business equipment, furniture
and electronics. We encourage you to recycle used batteries; most hardware stores have battery-recycling
programs. For more recycling information on the Internet, go to:

What We Recycle
Only wet waste, which is not recyclable, should be thrown in the trash bins with the clear liners. Clear liners
go directly to the landfill rather than through the sorting center (where all of our waste presently goes). This
includes coffee grounds, plant material, food scraps and wrappers, used cups/plates/cutlery, etc.
All paper products should go into the gray recycling bins, which are emptied by night crew. There is no
distinction between white paper and any other paper products including colored paper, newspapers,
magazines, junk mail, envelopes or cardboard. Please call the building office if you need paper recycling
trays for your desk or gray bins for common/copy area.
Additionally, cans and bottles can be also be put into the grey recycling bins. These items include glass
bottles, plastic bottles, cans, and plastic tubs. To keep pests and odors away, please rinse bottles and cans
before tossing.
NEVER put hazardous materials in the trash! Fluorescent light-bulbs, paint, glue, used hypodermic needles,
batteries, and computer monitors are examples of items that require special methods of disposal. Please do
not throw these items in the trash, for the safety of our janitorial crew, and trash collectors, as well as
cleanliness of the landfill. If you need a list of companies who will dispose of these products, please contact
the Building Office.
If you have any suggestions for improvements to our current recycling plan or would like more information
on ways you can help reduce your waste, please contact the Building Office at
