The Classic Center Green Information
The Classic Center remains committed to our “green initiative” to operate our facilities in the most energy efficient manner possible and to utilize green products and services when appropriate.
Water conservation is the use of low flow faucets, hands-free motion sensor faucets for high-volume restrooms and outdoor computerized irrigation systems.
The Classic Center is the proud recipient of the 2018 Leadership in Water Conservation Award for Business highlighting a project that would reduce our water use by 1.1 million gallons per year.
The Recycling Program is committed to a staff and visitor program including cardboard, scrap paper, newspaper, plastic and glass bottles, aluminum cans, toner cartridges, and wooden pallets.
Energy efficiency is energy audits conducted by Georgia Power, use of compact fluorescent light bulbs, computerized climate control systems, and motion sensor lighting controls. The Classic Center has moved toward solar energy to increase efficiency. Check out our current solar power usage here.
