Clean Earth is a Pledge Partner of Recycling at Work, a voluntary national effort led by Keep America Beautiful (KAB) to increase workplace recycling.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as much as 45 percent of the 250 million tons of municipal waste generated in 2010 was from businesses, government offices, retail establishments, schools and hospitals. As a Pledge Partner, Clean Earth joins a growing number of businesses and organizations across the country who have committed to reducing waste and making recycling a priority.
“We congratulate Clean Earth for its leadership in taking the Recycling at Work pledge,” said Brenda Pulley, KAB Senior Vice President, Recycling. “Increasing recycling rates translates into measurable benefits including waste reduction, energy savings, natural resource conservation and job creation.”
Clean Earth implements the Recycle at Work pledge through several sustainability initiatives described in the company’s 2016 – 2018 Sustainability Plan. These initiatives include but are not limited to companywide recycling programs for ink and toner cartridges, paper, cardboard, light bulbs, and other universal waste. Clean Earth is implementing electronic processing and filing of project documents in turn reducing mounds of paper and providing convenient access to files and projects through an online portal for our customers.
