In-House Recycling & Community Involvement
We take the time to recycle as much of our scrap as possible! Plastic, metal & hybrid scrap is all sorted and sent to local and national recycling facilities. We use a long-standing local community workshop program that employs the disabled in the community for secure shredding and recycling of our sensitive documents. All other scrap paper is taken to a local charity bin for recycling. We are looking to add a community sign recycling drop off in the future. Whenever possible, we donate materials/supplies to a local arts program that has a community storehouse available to teachers and low-income art students.
Office and shop trash is separated into a co-mingle bin, which is picked up by a local company, sorted and recycled.
Check back in the coming years for added practices!
RECYCLED PLASTIC PRODUCTS
Our plastic posts are manufactured utilizing high quality recycled HDPE. Our feedstock incorporates both post-consumer and post-industrial recyclable plastic into each board. Our processes are considered proprietary information, however we would be happy to provide you with samples, technical data information, and span charts.
All of our posts are made in the USA from plastic waste, primarily milk cartons and laundry detergent containers. Did you know that it takes approximately eight 1 gallon milk containers to make a pound of material? A standard 2×4 post weighs 2 pounds per foot. Therefore a 2x4x8ft post would require 128 milk containers! In addition to posts, we offer park benches utilizing our plastic boards. Our 8ft park benches are made from 3×4 boards. Each 3×4 weighs 3.1# p/lf. An 8ft board would require approximately 199 milk cartons. Each bench requires 8 boards or 1,592 milk cartons!
Our entire process is environmentally friendly. We are keeping thousands of pounds of material out of landfills and no toxic by-products or noxious fumes are associated with the production of our material. There is also no waste in the process. Purge or cut ends are ground up and recycled back through the process. This lumber has a 50 year life, and is 100% recyclable!
