City County Building Recycling Update

Message from Public Building Authority to City County Building Dwellers:

Our combined efforts in recycling are going so well, we in the PBA have had to contact Waste Management to have the solid waste trash container collection schedule reduced by two days service versus the five day a week original schedule. We could not have given this great news without the help of our fellow partners in the City of Knoxville, Knox County, Premiere Building Maintenance, CCB Coffee Shop Management and the Sertoma Center. All have been instrumental in this new call to set an example and to challenge other government facilities in their recycling programs. We all are aware that we have areas to improve in so each step forward we believe will continue to take us all on this continued journey called recycling.
