Going Green at 1515 & 1555 Poydras!

Please join us in our first E-Recycling Event!

1515 Poydras - Wednesday, November 30th

1555 Poydras - Thursday, December 1st

Do you have an old computer gathering dust? PCs, monitors, and other electronics contain hazardous wastes such as barium, beryllium, phosphorus, lead and many other hazardous chemicals. It is important to keep these hazardous chemicals out of our landfills where they can leach into the groundwater. When you recycle, these products are reused to the degree possible, and that is good for the environment.
The following equipment will be accepted: computers, monitors, printers, speakers, power cords, keyboards, mice, VGA cables, other cords/cables, VHS players, DVD players, stereo equipment, CD players, phone systems, cell phones, video game systems (Xbox, Playstation, etc.) and anything with a circuit board. NO televisions, copiers or appliances.

A table will be set up in the Main Lobby on the appropriate day for someone from your office to come down and sign up for the removal services.  CACRC will then come up to your office and bring the recyclable items down to the loading dock for you. 
All hard drives are wiped clean whether it is requested or not to the national standards. If hard drives are inoperable, they will be physically destroyed. Certificates of Destruction are available upon request for your donation. 

There will be a $5.00 per CRT monitor and a $3.00 fee for printer/fax machines.  These costs will be billed directly to your office. 

For more information about the CACRC, please visit their website at www.cacrc.com.

Do something good for your Business and the Environment!

Fire Extinguisher Training

Tuesday, November 29th from 10:00am-11:00am
7th Floor 1555 Parking Garage

TO OPERATE: If you use a fire extinguisher remember the word PASS.
PULL…Pull the pin.  Some extinguishers require releasing a latch or pressing a puncture lever.
AIM… Aim low, pointing the extinguisher nozzle (or its horn or hose) at the base of the fire.
Squeeze… Squeeze the handle. This releases the extinguishing agent.
SWEEP… Sweep from side to side at the base of the fire until it appears to be out. Watch the
fire area in case fire breaks out again, and repeat the use of the extinguisher if necessary.

Please remember it is your responsibility to have your fire extinguishers inspected annually per NFPA code. 
If we may be of assistance, please contact the management office at (504) 585-2670.
