Each year, Earth Day serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving our planet for future generations. Our company invests in the planet by working together with our clients on sustainability initiatives and goals.
For Earth Day 2023, we are proud to highlight one of our Global Manufacturing accounts in New York state where our team plans an annual Community Recycling Day. This event focuses on sustainable practices while encouraging employees, contractors, and vendors to recycle responsibly – on-site and at home.
Last year, over 125,000 people attended the event and 75 volunteers helped organize the disposal of over 145,000 pounds of paint, automotive batteries, light bulbs, scrap metal, electronics, used oil and tires. In addition to Community Recycling Day, the C&W Services team oversees the client’s Zero Landfill policy, which governs how products are recycled effectively and responsibly.
