Please describe what you do to promote Wipe Out Waste Ambassador initiatives on-site, both internally to staff and externally to customers or visitors.
We teamed with Mecklenburg County 2 years ago and began a recycling program.  We conducted meetings with representatives from Mecklenburg County and our residents to educate and encourage recycling.

Please provide examples of your company’s commitment to purchase “Green Products” and the results and/or impact doing so has had on your business.
Our Phase I parking lot was seal coated using 100% asphalt based sealer. The VOC’s for asphalt based sealer are drastically less than the standard coal tar sealant. Also the asphalt does not have the harmful PAH’s that coal tar has.

The property replaced the all breezeway lighting with CFL bulbs through the Duke Power energy program.  Lighting was replaced with energy efficient bulbs in all units.
