1633 Broadway's 48 tower floors and overall size of 2.5million square feet equate to an inordinately large waste & recycling volume. Managing it requires a team effort among property management, the janitorial contractor, and the waste hauling vendor.
The compacting machines provided by the waste hauling vendor are located in the 1633 Broadway loading dock. The wet compactor has a capacity of 15 cubic yards, and the dry compactor is 39 cubic yards. The units are labeled clearly and designated for either recycling or non-recyclables. The waste hauling company is contracted to collect and transport all recyclables and trash from the property. The vendor owns and operates a state-of -the-art, negative sort processing facility. There, all dry waste and recyclables from 1633 are sorted into various categories to maximize recycling and reuse. The “negative sort” feature allows the paper waste to be reproduced as a recycled product that will be used to make fine writing material by International Paper. Other grades of recyclables that include cardboard, mixed paper, newspaper, and plastics are shipped to various mills to make a host of other recycled items.
