Recycle Program

Recycle Program

More and more today, companies are searching for solutions to deal with their waste and support Environmental Sustainability Goals,not just to keep our Planet clean, but to also establish efficient cost savings at the same time. No one wants to think about Waste as a result of production and consumption systems that are inefficient and unsustainable, however, being committed to a sustainable plan that reduces your waste stream will help send a positive message to all your customers, and suppliers and set a clear objective for your organization. We endeavor to partner with our clients to help them reduce operating costs and generate savings, all while establishing short and longterm sustainable plans. In doing this, we have saved many of our clients, on average, 25%, and we achieve these goals in the following ways.

POLYETHYLENE/POLYURETHANE MATERIAL

As a New Recycling Initiative, we began to recycle Polyethylene (PE) and Polyurethane (PUR) at the first of the year, providing our clients with a sensible meansto dispose of their unused and leftover PE & PUR, while saving them as much as 25% on their cost for waste disposal. In our first year alone, we have Densinated and Recycled about 33 tons of PE, and 32 tons of PUR, having the Environmental Impact of saving 375,310 Kwh of Energy, 1,060 Barrels of Oil,6.37 Billion BTU’s of Energy, 1,950 Cubic Yards of Landfill Space.
