SUNY Downstate Medical Center Green Initiative
Filco Carting, a pioneer in the evolution of waste removal and recycling is the waste management company responsible for collecting and recycling the trash generated at SUNY Downstate.

Filco's clients include:
Con Edison Corp., Verizon Corp. Citibank, Board of Education, Goldman Sachs, Target and Cushman Wakefield.
