Asbury Methodist Village was recently awarded the 2017 City of Gaithersburg Environmental Award. Asbury has earned this award several times, and we are honored to be recognized for our continued work to help make Montgomery County a more sustainable and green region.

Asbury's sustainability programs are a collaborative effort between Asbury residents and associates. Special thanks go to Asbury's Maintenance & Grounds Department. Vito Bellafiore, pictured, accepted the award on our behalf. 

Among our efforts in 2016 were:

  • maintaining certification by the Wildlife Habitat Council as a “Corporate Wildlife at Work” site
  • recycling more than 152,000 pounds of carpet from renovated apartments
  • holding a Shred-It Day for Asbury residents, and,
  • increasing the number of trash receptacles made of recyclable materials.
