We have reduced energy consumption through the installation of motion-activated LED lights, automated hand dryers, and programmed climate control. We also utilize electronic/paperless records as much as possible. For our customers, we accommodate and encourage the use of consolidated shipments and optimize delivery routes to use as little fuel as possible.
We minimize waste of packaging materials and re-use whenever appropriate. We have also discontinued the use of single-use plastic water bottles, replacing them with a reverse osmosis refill station. We recently created a "Green Team" in our Omaha office that is composed of volunteers to brainstorm ways to further reduce waste in all locations.
We recycle all paper, cardboard, aluminum, glass, and steel through readily available recycling bins at all facilities. We also offer a drum recycling program to our customers. Our Green Team is also tasked with ensuring all materials are recycled appropriately, and whenever possible.
