One of our favorite ways to help the environment and our community is to donate our items for new and creative uses. Here are a few recent recreations.
For all items we are unable to reuse, we recycle! Our Coopersville Service and Distribution Center was specifically designed to be able to house the storage space, cardboard balers and other machinery necessary to recycle cardboard, cores, plastic ties and film, styrofoam and old appliances.
This is not a money making effort for us but we truly believe in the cause and enjoy seeing how large of an impact our recyclables are making.
Our recycling efforts from January through June of 2017 have helped save:
- 107,170 gallons of water
- 94,218 KWH of energy
- 1,209 gallons of oil
- 919 pounds of air pollution effluents
- 260 trees
- 51 cubic yards of landfill space
Below is a full report of what Bekins and Classic Stereo have recycled and the resources saved for the first half of 2017.
