JBG SMITH is committed to maintaining a comprehensive, effective, and convenient recycling program. Recycling is required in each jurisdiction of the Washington, DC metropolitan region, and includes all recycle mixed paper, newspaper, cardboard (non-coated), aluminum beverage cans, glass bottles and jars, metal food cans, and plastic beverage containers.
This page outlines products that can be recycled in your building, as well as the resources and materials that are available to you.
All of the following materials can be recycled in your building:
  • Paper and Cardboard Recycling: all "mixed fiber," including office paper, cardboard, newspaper, magazines, and boxboard can be placed in the zone containers for pick up by the building janitorial company.
  • Bottle and Can Recycling: all aluminum cans, and glass and plastic bottles.  Bottles and cans should be deposited in a separate recycle bin from paper recyclables for pick up by the janitorial company.
  • Composting: East Building food court area tenants are equipped with composting bins for food waste.  This includes waste such as vegetables, bones, meats, dairy, paper and wax coated cardboard, organic foods, and fruits.
Your Property Management team will provide complementary:
  • Desk-side recycling containers for paper
  • Large recycling containers for kitchens and copy rooms
  • Recycling signage
  • One-on-one in-person recycling education.  (We encourage our tenants to work with their Property Managers to develop strong recycling programs in their suites.)
