Draft Office Building Recycling & Composting Guidelines

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Please take a moment to review the draft Office Building and Composting Guidelines (you can find the draft here) and report any feedback you may have to Jack Macy with the San Francisco Department of the Environment at

These guidelines provide models and best practices for effective implementation of office building recycling and composting in San Francisco, with the goal of full participation of all parties to achieve the City’s waste diversion goals. These practices address the role and responsibilities of office building management companies, tenants and janitorial service staff and companies to create a program that works for everyone involved with the on-site separation and management of: 1) recyclables, 2) compostables, and 3) trash for landfill. Effective programs avoid contamination by keeping all three streams separated for collection. These guidelines therefore facilitate compliance with the City’s proposed Mandatory Recycling and Composting Ordinance.
