Crossroads Properties  Newsletter

October 2014
As you will see below, we have been busy in recent months preparing for several new tenants, especially at the Crossroads Commerce Center.

In addition, we have been focusing our efforts on training Brad Geisler, our new Director of Operations to the Crossroads Family. Brad comes to us with many years of experience in the property management/maintenance field.  He has two children and three granddaughters.  He  enjoys spending time traveling with his wife Tanja, and is an avid hunter. Brad is from Hudson, WI and lives near the Willow River State Park.

Our efforts continue to reduce recyclables going into the waste stream.  See below for more details and additional tips on recycling.

The team at Crossroads Properties  is gearing up for the winter and upcoming holiday season.  Please see below for reminders on winter procedures.
In honor of the Thanksgiving Holiday Crossroads Properties will be closed on Thursday 11/27 and  and Friday 11/28.  For any urgent issues during this time, please call 651-731-0708 and follow the out-going instructions to be connected to our on-call service.

Office tenants: Thank you to all who have increased participation in recycling!  We have seen a decrease in recyclables going into the solid waste stream, but still see challenges in the following areas:

  • Shredded/loose paper:  Please contain all shredded and loose paper.  This should be done in boxes, paper bags, or CLEAR plastic bags.  The waste hauler prefers that we do not use plastic, as it has to manually be removed, but if they can tell the bag contains just recyclable material they will open and dump it at their site.  When the containers are picked up at our sites loose paper tends to blow out and makes a mess in our parking lots.
  • Boxes: All empty boxes need to be collapsed prior to putting them in the container.  Full boxes take up a significant amount of space which leads to overflowing containers and in turn a mess in our trash rooms and recyclables in the trash.
  • Packing materials: Plastic film and styrofoam can not  be recycled in our co-mingle containers.  Please remove them from boxes before collapsing and either re-use or collect and bring to site that does recycle/reuse. (Most The UPS Store locations will take them.) Here is a link to the Woodbury location: The UPS Store.

Warehouse tenants with direct service:  As of January 1, 2016, most businesses in the Twin Cities will be required by law to recycle. Commercial businesses  that contract for four cubic yards or more per week of solid waste collection will need to implement recycling of at least three types of materials, such as paper, glass, plastic, metal and organics.

Recycling tip

Reducing Unwanted Mail in the Workplace. Businesses receive mounds of unsolicited mail such as catalogs and advertisements. Handling unwanted mail costs your company time and money, as does:

  • Mail for employees that no longer work for the company
  • Multiple mailings for the same person
  • Poorly targeted mailings

Cut costs and save valuable time by reducing unwanted mail. See Reduce the Hail of Unwanted Mail from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. For further information, visit the Ecological Mail Coalition web site.

Snow Removal

The cold has arrived and we know the snow season will be here soon as well. The Crossroads Properties maintenance team and our plowing contractor will be working hard to clear the snow from parking lots and sidewalks as needed. The goal is to have the major work completed by 7:00 AM. Of course when the snow comes during the day, all attempts will be made to minimize challenges for human and vehicle mobility. Please drive and walk with caution when the snow plows are active, and feel free to contact us if you notice any dangerous conditions. If you need to leave a vehicle overnight for any reason please contact us so we can provide a location that will least impact the snow removal. Thank you for your cooperation.
