ASE Green Certified

Working in conjunction with local solid waste districts and analyzing municipal waste ordinances, we have created a “Green” certificate that will allow your property or municipality to meet current recycling guidelines and provide a client facing certification that establishes your facility as being ASE Green Certified! The benefits of this are:

  1. A proactive approach to meeting recycling guidelines whether mandated by ordinance or not. The three key metrics are reduce, reuse and recycle.
  2. Displaying a sought after amenity/certification for many people and businesses looking to live or work in environmentally conscious areas. This will set you apart from your competition.
  3. A sustainable solution to your waste management programs that will bring you greater admiration in your community.
  4. Recognition of the need for change and efficiency in waste management
  5. Being part of the solution in your city in solving the waste crisis that is growing across the country

Being GREEN is a simple and cost effective way of life, not just the use of a
word. ASE GREEN Certification is a verifiable statement that a multifamily community lives GREEN.
