As part of our commitment to the community and the environment, we engineer our containers to use less natural resources and to ship far more effectively, thereby avoiding large volumes of carbon emissions. All of our products are made with recycled content and are 100% recyclable.
Not Recycling Yet?
Some locations do not yet offer recycling pick up or drop off locations, so how can you still be green? Practicing the other 2 “R”’s Reduce & Reuse is a great start! Monitor your energy and waste consumption; you may be surprised at your wasteful habits. Purchasing waste containers that are made with recycled content is another way to be green without recycling. Starting a home composting program will not only help the environment, by diverting waste from landfills, but you will also benefit from soil for your gardens. Feeling ambitious? Start a movement to get a recycling program started in your community, you can make a difference!
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized green building certification system, developed by the US Green Building Council (USGCB). One of their goals is to increase the demand for products that incorporate recycled content materials, therefore reducing the impact on our environment from processing virgin materials.
The use of any Busch Systems containers, with a minimum of 35% recycled content, will contribute to the 1 LEED point available for use of Recycled Content under the Materials and Resources Project.
LEED provides guidelines for the amount of space dedicated to recycling collection within a facility. It is in the best interest of your recycling program to have several locations equipped with recycling bins to make it easy for employees to participate in your collection program.
If you are pursuing LEED certification, then you already know the value in creating a sustainable environment. Choosing materials and resources which are environmentally-friendly are an important piece of the puzzle. Why not use recycling bins made from recycled content as well? What a great concept!
