At Trinity Centre, LLC, we appreciate and support the positive effect that recycling can have on the environment.
Our carting company has a sorting facility with a single-stream recycling program where the acceptable refuse includes paper, cardboard, box board, glass, metal and plastics. There is no need to separate them within your office, the only thing to remember is to throw food waste in your pantry trash bin.
The porter staff puts everything in clear bags to make it easy for our vendor to separate the ones that contain food waste from the ones that contain recyclable material.

All businesses in New York City are required to recycle certain materials and ensure to their best ability that those recyclable materials are properly handled by their private carter. It is never, under any circumstances, permitted for recyclable material to be collected in the same bag with garbage, or be placed in the same compartment of a truck or container with garbage. Starting on August 1, 2017, all tenants are required to sort their trash based on the new recycling rules. The NYC Department of Sanitation has created materials and trainings to assist businesses in complying with requirements, and to encourage additional waste prevention efforts.
