Ice Cream Sweetens Recycling Drive

Great Forest client 712 Fifth Avenue, managed by the Paramount Group, held an ice cream social recently and Great Forest was there to promote the building’s recycling program to its many tenants.


The building already recycles nearly 400 tons of waste per year. The ice cream social was just a sweet way to encourage even more recycling.

“Outreach like this is the key to increasing recycling rates in buildings with many tenants,”  says Anna Dengler, part of the Greast Forest team at the event.

“We can talk to bigger groups at these face to face meetings and help more people understand the program.”

Great Forest representatives spoke with approximately 100 people, answered questions, and handed out recycling fliers and stickers.
