New York - Crowded landfills were on the minds of New York's sanitation officials when they mandated offices to separate and recycle of-fice paper. Thanks to the efforts of Vibro, a Brooklyn-based paper recycling firm, some local charities also will benefit from the city-wide recycling efforts of office workers, tenants and building management companies.
Last year, nearly $40,000 was donated to the Boy Scouts, the Ju-venile Diabetes Foundation and the Children's Aid Society. Vibro made this contribution based on revenue from the volumes of paper it collected from the city's office buildings.
"Vibro felt that a good way to educate tenants and office workers a-bout separating trash and waste paper would be to institute support for charitable causes," said John A. Vitale, the company's president. "The combination of recycling and helping kids has been very successful for building management companies who must implement office recycling."
The program will continue for another year, according to company officials. Vibro reportedly collects and processes 150 tons of waste paper per day.
