The Adler Group is a multi-tenant, full service real estate developer, managing more than 7.4 million square feet of property, primarily in Florida and the southeastern United States.
Well known and respected for its high standards, Adler is growing rapidly and sees waste management as a core responsibility and an opportunity for continuous improvement.
Progressive Waste Solutions serves 10 Adler-managed properties and our relationship began after Van L. Antle, Director of Operations, saw a presentation we made on recycling during a municipal training seminar. “We were very interested in the green effect, but it’s hard to make recycling work well in multitenant buildings. When I saw the (Progressive Waste Solutions) presentation, and the simplicity of its approach, it was just like a light bulb went off. I said ‘That’s the company that’s going to make it work’.”
Subsequent discussions led the Progressive Waste Solutions team to conduct a waste audit for Adler properties, prepare a recycling presentation that Adler gave to its tenants and launch a program that is achieving high diversion rates. “It really turned out well for us. Our tenants love it, we have achieved a six out of seven energy star rating because of recycling and energy efficiency in our buildings and we save money. As we grow and as we acquire properties, we intend to keep doing this; it’s the Adler way.”
