Decotech Re-uses & Recycles
As a Zero-Waste-to-Landfill compliant company, Decotech aims to always re-use or recycle all materials, and is committed to diverting all our waste away from landfills. Decotech recycles everything that is economically feasible. Some of our re-using & recycling initiatives include the following:
- 100% of our paper waste is collected and recycled.
- Every glass, plastic and aluminum bottle or can in our facility is collected for recycling.
- All cardboard packaging we receive, is re-used or recycled.
- 100% of all our waste that cannot be re-used or recycled is converted to energy.
In addition to being a Zero-Waste-to-Landfill compliant company, Decotech also utilizes the Waste-to-Energy process used by many businesses and facilities around the country. This process helps us to create useful energy, such as electricity or heat, from our waste products that can’t be recycled or re-used. This Waste-to-Energy process has many benefits for our facility operations, including:
- Generating useful power;
- Disposing of solid waste in an environmentally responsible way and;
- Reducing the amount of waste and gas emissions produced by our facility.
Benefits of Glass Packaging
With glass packaging comes great benefits. Glass is known to be the most trusted packaging for helping to improve the environment. According to the Glass Packing Institute, there are many benefits to the use of glass packaging for any and every industry. These benefits include the following:
- Glass is 100% recyclable. It can be continuously recycled and not lose its quality.
- 80% of glass that is recovered is recycled to make new glass products.
- With an almost zero rate of chemical interactions, glass bottles or containers will preserve the strength and aroma of the product inside of them.
