Briefly describe your organization's products/services and the size of operations.
Replacing customers expendable packaging with reusable packaging on lease terms. These pooling solutions elimate packaging waste and save our customer on thier overall packaging costs. We have over 20,000 bulk reusable containers in our supply loops which are all tracked, cleaned and repaired after each use.
As a "green" solutions provider, we believe that this is the future of packaging. The concept of zero waste is one that more companies are adopting and it will soon be something that all companies, big and small, will be participating in as environmental friendly education and awareness evolve.
What is your organization doing to eliminate waste?
We eliminate our customer expendable packaging by leasing them reusable plastic containers. All dunnage (poly bags, fiberboard partitions) are recycled on site. We even have a service to take your unwanted recyclable material back on our trucks to be treated at our facility. If you are using bulk corrugated containers, we can eliminate your waste, give you stronger packaging that will increase safety and product protection, and reduce your overall packaging costs.

We have reached our goals and our customers goals as far as packaging waste goes but we can use some improvements with office waste at our Middlefield, OH location. It's on my "to do" list for this quarter to initiate a office waste recycling program. Glad to be part of the site. I would love the chance to help all those who are interested in reducing their packaging waste.
