Continued Success With 2013 NOSHOK Recycling Program
We are proud to announce that our Recycling Program continues to be an overwhelming success in 2013. This year we recycled 42,894 pounds of paper, glass, plastic and aluminum – and a total of 91,177 pounds since its inception in April 2012. The recycling initiative of paper and cardboard alone resulted in impressive savings, including:
- 381 trees saved (total 733 since inception)
- 156,986 gallons of water saved (total 301,655 since inception)
- 67 cubic yards of landfill space saved (total 129 since inception)
- 45 barrels of oil saved (total 86 since inception)
- 91,949 kwh of electricity saved (total 176,683 since inception)
Also, due to our recent purchase of actuators for our HVAC system with The Energy Conscious, a tree has been planted in NOSHOK’s name as part of their Plant-a-Tree initiative.
We will continue to build upon our recycling initiatives in 2014 to promote our ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility and creating a green workplace!
