Did you know that the average person generates over 4 pounds of trash every day? That can equal up to 200 million tons of waste every year! (www.dosomething.org). It is imperative that we as a population use the resources we have available to us to prevent creating excess waste that can be harmful to our environment. With an increasing focus on sustaining our environment, Fry-Wagner has taken steps toward creating a healthier environment by providing our customers who are coordinating a commercial move with green moving solutions. We take pride in having our green moving solutions readily available for all our commercial clients, no matter what their relocation needs may be. Read more about some of the green moving solutions Fry-Wagner has available below!
Reusable Plastic Crates:
Cardboard materials make up about 1/3 of landfill waste. Reusable plastic crates are a great resource not only for your move, but also for the environment. These crates are clean, efficient, secure, stackable, cheaper, and sustainable. Plastic crates require 39% less energy to manufacture and generate 29% less total greenhouse gas emissions! Overall, by incorporating reusable plastic crates into your upcoming relocation project you will produce 95% less in total waste. (Reusable Pallet & Container Coalition).
Recycled Metal and Wire:
In total, the world produces about 40 million tons of electronic waste every year. Electronic waste accounts for close to 70% of all our toxic waste, which can be extremely detrimental to our environment. (www.theworldcounts.com). Fry-Wagner will make sure to take the necessary steps to dispose and recycle your unused electronic equipment safely and efficiently. Even if some electronics are still working, we will reuse this equipment by donating or selling it to those who can put it to use. It is our goal to not only reduce our own carbon footprint, but also your company’s as well. We will arrange pickup services to properly remove and recycle all metals, electronics and wires.
We understand that with every major commercial relocation there will be leftover debris once the move is complete. Fry-Wagner always reuses any viable box or crate from a move. We will personally pickup any debris that is leftover from a commercial move and dispose or recycle the debris in the safest possible way to ensure we are protecting the environment and producing less waste.
Recycling and Repurposing Furniture:
Fry-Wagner is happy to take any unwanted furniture from your company to have it repurposed or recycled. Your company can save a lot of money in storage fees by allowing us to get rid of your unwanted furniture by donating the items to one of the many local charities and organizations we work with in the area. If the furniture is not in usable condition, we will dismantle the piece and repurpose the materials by properly recycling them, to ensure the materials stay out of landfills.
We can all make a difference by striving to actively change our habit of producing unnecessary waste to better our environment.
