Ashley Munger started this petition to Silverbrick Rentals and

We, the undersigned, request that a recycling option be introduced in A, B, C, and D buildings of Silverbrick Lofts (24 Taylor St., Springfield, MA, 01103). 

Tenants at Silverbrick are eager to see a recycling program in the building because we understand that recycling is one of the easiest and most important things we can to do combat the climate crisis. We want to ensure a healthy planet for ourselves and our children, and, given that 75% of America's waste is recyclable, we know that recycling our waste can have a huge impact. We know that 80% of the waste in American landfills could have been recycled, and we don't want to contribute to that problem. Right now, many of us take our recyclables to off-site facilities, but we believe Silverbrick tenants would recycle at a much higher rate if there were recycling receptacles in the buildings. We feel that any luxury apartment complex should offer this basic amenity. Younger, environmentally conscious people are more likely to rent from a company that offers eco-friendly options such as recycling.

Waste Management (WM) will provide and service an 8-yard recycling dumpster (smaller dumpsters are available) for $264.87 per month. The dumpster could be placed on the concrete pad behind C/D building or on any of the concrete near A/B buildings. Smaller receptacles could be placed inside the buildings - similarly to how trash is collected. 

The cost of recycling is minimal. The tenants who have signed this petition would be willing to pay a monthly recycling fee of $1-3 dollars per apartment in order to maintain a recycling program at Silverbrick Lofts. We implore you to make the best decision for your tenants and for the environment.
