SAN MATEO, CA - The City of Hayward is honoring Amador Village Apartments in Hayward, CA with the 2011 Environmental Achievement Award for participation in the residential curbside recycling program. For Prometheus Real Estate Group and the property owner, The Sobrato Organization, the path to sustainability and environmentally-friendly practices at their communities continues to grow with these "green" initiatives: Sustainable landscape practices that utilize drought tolerant plants. Many of our communities are now smoke-free. Low flow plumbing fixtures and energy efficient appliances. Reducing paper use with on-line tools to lease and pay rent, get real-time pricing for available units, purchase renters insurance, manage utilities, log service requests, or reserve a facility. Movement towards paperless online advertising and away from printed advertising.
