Osgoode Properties provides recycling services at all of our properties so that all residents may reduce the amount of trash they send to landfill. Each of our buildings is unique, and most were constructed before recycling became common practice. Nevertheless, we have overcome the construction obstacles to ensure recycling methods are made accessible to our residents.
Please contact your rental office for recycling measures specific to your apartment complex.
Osgoode Properties is continually seeking to implement energy saving measures in order to reduce overall energy and resource consumption.
In Ottawa and Kingston, all of our buildings have been retrofitted with water saving toilets, shower heads, and faucet aerators. Since 2001, these measures have allowed our residents to save over two million cubic metres of water.
Beginning in 2000, Osgoode commenced retrofitting all of our residential buildings to convert common-area incandescent lighting to lower energy compact fluorescent lighting. In 2008, we began a program converting all in-suite light fixtures from incandescent to compact fluorescent. These measures help reduce electrical consumption at each building, reducing both Osgoode Properties' energy costs, as well as the energy costs for our tenants that pay their own hydro.
