Business Leadership Paper Recycling Award presented

The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) 2012 Business Leadership Recycling Award was presented to One American Center, a 32 story office building located in downtown Austin, Texas that is operated and managed by Thomas Properties Group.

The One American Center program stood out from other entries as a result of the successful recovery of more than 145,000 lbs. of paper and paper-based packaging in 2011 (505 lbs. per tenant) and an additional 208,000 lbs. of shredded confidential files. Even more impressive, the recycling program is offered on a voluntary basis to tenants, who are educated through newsletters, building-wide recycling events, brochures and a website.
