Decotech is dedicated to reducing, not only our energy usage, but also the waste stream from our facility. We strongly believe that every little bit counts. With a dedication to excellence, stewardship and leadership, we protect the environment and the health and safety of our employees and members of the community.
We train our employees and show them the proper steps to take to be more energy efficient and to reduce our waste stream. Our employees are taught, and regularly reminded, of things they can do to generate less waste. Some examples of our waste reduction efforts include:
- Replacing paper towels with HEPA filtered hand dryers in all the restrooms to eliminate that paper waste.
- Changing facility sink faucets to low-flow motion-sensing systems in order to reduce our water waste.
- Educating employees to bring lunch to work in reusable, rather than disposable, containers.
- Converting paper-based management systems to “accessible-from-anywhere” web-based systems to effectively reduce our reliance on paper.
- Eliminating the use of paper cups and plates throughout our facilities. All glassware and tableware is cleaned and re-used to reduce waste.
Zero-Waste-to-Landfill Compliant Company
To help reduce the stream of waste from our glass manufacturing facility, we have become a Zero-Waste-to-Landfill compliant company. We never send our waste materials to decompose in a landfill, but instead re-use, recover and recycle our materials whenever possible.
When re-using, recovering and recycling is not possible, we convert our waste to energy using the Waste-to-Energy process that is used by many businesses and facilities around the country. With this process, we can create useful energy while helping to improve the environment we live and work in. This Waste-to-Energy process has many benefits for our facility operations, which include:
- Generating useful power;
- Disposing of the waste from our facility in a responsible way and;
- Reducing the amount of waste and gas emissions produced by our facility.
Certified In Environmental Management
In 2009, Decotech became an ISO 14001 certified compliant company. The ISO 14001 standard is an Environmental Certification provided by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). In addition, we also maintain a joint ISO 9001 Quality Certification and ISO 14001 Environmental Certification. View our ISO 14001:2004 Certificate.
Benefits of Glass Packaging

- Glass can be continuously recycled and not lose its quality.
- Glass can be recovered and recycled to make new glass products.
- Glass has an almost zero rate of chemical interactions.
