Why We're Green
At Meadowbrook we offer on-site garbage, recycling, card board only recycling, composting as well as a pet waste station for our resident’s convenience. At the Meadowbrook leasing office we accept battery and light bulb recycling and know locations nearby that accept plastic bag recycling such as QFC and Fred Meyer. We work with Living Green Technology and have an electronic and technology recycling collection bin that is picked up regularly. We are happy to report high participation in our recycling programs but realize that there is always room for improvement.
At Meadowbrook we know how important it is for each member of our community to do their part and take the time to recycle and dispose of waste correctly. We keep our residents informed with letters about recycling and reminders in our newsletters. We have hosted educational resident events with Recology to inform residents about recycling best practices. A new Recycling and Garbage Addendum has been implemented in each resident lease explaining our waste, recycling and composting policies and how to recycle properly.
With sustainability as a priority at Meadowbrook we strive to be an example to our residents by using materials that are recyclable such as paper plates and no Styrofoam in our office or at resident events. We have LED lighting installed throughout the property and turn out lights when not in use. We provide installation of weather stripping to help residents weather proof their homes and conserve energy. Our SPR team at Meadowbrook is always looking for ways to reduce waste and conserve on energy and products. We are available to our residents to answer questions and encourage open discussion on any issues and concerns they may have about recycling and sustainability.
