The Corporate Headquarters in Brentwood (TN) is celebrating its 5th Green Anniversary! In 2010, the Waves Office Recycling Program began regular pick-up of paper, plastic and aluminum. On a weekly schedule, a Recycling Coordinator arrives with his staff to empty the categorized bins in the break rooms throughout the building.
Founded in 1973, Waves serves more than 250 adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Williamson County (TN). The Recycling Program started in 1994 and provides employment by providing pick-up to 50 businesses in the Nashville area.
