WHO CAN ATTEND? The Recycling Ambassador trainings are only open to Athens Services’, City of Los Angeles multi-family customers and their residents. RSVP is required to attend. The Recycling Ambassador training is an ideal opportunity for many parties, including: interested tenants; apartment green/sustainability team members; HOA president, chair, or committee members; and/or onsite manager or custodial. WHY BECOME A RECYCLING AMBASSADOR? A Recycling Ambassador is an onsite waste liaison who works directly with their property management, to support and enhance the recycling and waste diversion efforts of their apartment complex. Athens Services’ program trains motivated apartment dwellers and management staff to provide peer-to-peer outreach and education on proper recycling practices; monitor signage, contamination, and the overall waste diversion set-up; and work directly with the property management on identifying solutions. A Recycling Ambassador can also help to mitigate contamination and overfill issues, which can save the property time and money. WHEN ARE THE TRAININGS? Tenants, managers, staff, and/or HOA members are all invited to attend one of our upcoming sessions.* Athens Service will host one training in each of their franchise service zones. The first training is happening in the City of Los Angeles, North Central zone.
