  1. Albany Pine Bush Preserve Earth Day Clean Up 2016

    Friday, April 29, 2016

    This year Tri City Rentals has decided to give back to the community on Earth Day and use our greatest asset to accomplish this...our teams!

    Employee volunteer group

    Earth Day clean up

    On Friday, April 29th, Tri City Rentals’ employees volunteered their time to help clean up the Albany Pine Bush Preserve in honor of Earth Day. Volunteers helped clear trails, pick-up debris, and remove plants and bushes that were invasive to the Pine Bush. With our hard work and dedication to giving back to the community and The Albany Pine Bush Preserve, we were instrumental in doing the work of one month in just 2 hours. As an organization, we are committed to environmental stewardship and believe that it is the responsibility of our employees and business partners to be conscious of ways that we can improve our impact on the earth. Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this year’s Employee Earth Day Clean Up at The Albany Pine Bush Preserve a success! We look forward to providing more volunteer opportunities for many worthy causes in the near future and for years to come.


    The Albany Pine Bush Preserve is a globally rare ecosystem located in the heart of the Capital District with 3,200 acres of nature preserve and more than 18 miles of trails. Chosen as a National Natural Landmark for its extraordinary sand dunes, the Preserve is also a New York State Unique Area, Bird Conservation Area and a National Audubon Society Important Bird Area.

    Tri City Rentals is teaming up with local nonprofit Capital Roots for their 5th annual Electronic Waste Collection event in the Capital Region. This event provides residents and the entire Capital Region the opportunity to recycle electronic waste free of charge and close to home. Residents and the public can rest easy knowing that any personal data on hard drives or similar data storage devices will be safely destroyed and that community landfills will be saved from the release of non-biodegradable and potentially hazardous materials. For every 10 pounds e-waste recycled throughout the event, Tri City Rentals will donate $1 to Capital Roots. Last year, Tri City Rentals recycled more than 45,000 pounds of e-waste.

     

    Beginning January 1, 2015, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation issued an e-waste disposal ban on individuals and households as part of the Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act signed into law in 2010. This ban makes it illegal for individuals and households to dispose of certain types of electronic equipment in landfills, the trash, waste-to-energy facilities, and curbside trash pickup. This free recycling event gives residents an opportunity to easily comply with the law.

     

    Items accepted at the event include computer towers, laptops, servers, monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, cords, printers, projectors, fax machines, microwaves, cellphones, pagers, televisions, desktop copiers, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, turntables, clock radios, cameras, camera chargers, routers, switches, hubs, telephones, and video gaming systems.

     

    Tri City Rentals has owned and managed premier apartment communities throughout New York state for the past 50 years. Communities owned by the company are located in the three largest regions of upstate New York. Tri City Rentals owns and operates 24 communities in the Capital Region, including communities in Albany, Troy, Schenectady, Saratoga and Warren counties. Learn more at tricityrentals.com.

     

    Capital Roots, formerly Capital District Community Gardens, is a 40-year-old nonprofit organization that nourishes healthy communities with 50 Community Gardens, The Veggie Mobile® produce markets, Healthy Stores, The Produce Project, Squash Hunger and more. Capital Roots recently opened the Urban Grow Center, a regional facility focused on urban agriculture and produce distribution to four counties. Learn more at capitalroots.org.

    We are excited to announce the opening of our Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Albany, NY! We have installed two Leviton Evr-Green Level 2 public use stations at our Woodlake Apartments in Guilderland. This station is compatible with all electric vehicles and plug-in electric hybrid vehicles. The Level 2 charging stations will require about 3-6 hours to charge a fully depleted battery.

    These stations are linked to the ChargePoint network, which is the largest online network of independently owned Electric Vehicle charging stations in the world. Users can access this network online and also through mobile applications on all Smart Phones.  Users can use the ChargePoint network to map out convenient charging stations along their drive. They can also reserve time slots.

    We chose Woodlake Apartments as the location for our first EV Charging Stations because of its proximity to area conveniences. We offer easy access to major roadways such as I-87, I-90, and Route 85. We are also located within walking distance to Stuyvesant Plaza, Crossgates Mall, and other area attractions.
