CWM’s goal is to be as transparent as possible with our customers about our environmental impact. To that end, we have started a blog series showing how we are reducing our carbon footprint.
In January 2023, CWM recycled the following:
- 102 lbs. of paper
- 2,233 lbs. of cardboard
- 237 lbs. of plastic
- 12 lbs. of Styrofoam
- 2,898 lbs. of wooden skids
A total of 5,482 pounds were diverted from the landfill, and 8 cubic yards of mixed recyclables were sent to our partner, Groot, for recycling.
Where Does It All Go?
CWM purchased a baler in 1997; back then, Loop Recycling picked up our baled cardboard. Loop Recycling created a use for this scrap cardboard by selling it to companies that made bedding material for farm animals.
We currently ship our cardboard to Imperial Recycling. Imperial consolidates materials, and it eventually goes back to the producers, where it is converted back into new cardboard.
