The recycling committee distributed informational posters and e-mails about how and what to recycle and coordinated with the U.S. General Services Administration and REACH to install recycling stations in the post office lobby and on each floor. The committee also worked with GSA to include recycling pick-up from each floor in the recently renewed janitorial contract. Employee volunteers from several federal agencies continue to facilitate and improve recycling within their agencies.
