Food Waste Diversion In Heart of Manhattan
Motivation, infrastructure and economics are key to implementation of office composting at The Durst Organization, one of New York City’s largest family-owned real estate developers. The program is the brainchild of Helena Durst, a co-vice president and fourth-generation family member, who is leading the charge to green the company’s building management practices. Partnering with Durst is Royal Waste Services Inc., in Hollis, New York, a waste management and recycling company that collects, processes and transports the separated organics, and McEnroe Organic Farm, near Millerton, New York, where the material is composted. Durst hopes to ultimately expand its waste diversion program beyond just the company’s headquarters at the Bank of America Tower in Manhattan to tenants in the company’s sizable commercial real estate portfolio.
