Become a Zero Waste Business

We are excited to announce that just before the Christmas break we became a founding member of the U.S. Zero Waste Business Council! The mission of the USZWBC is to educate, inform and document the performance of Zero Waste Businesses using scientific methods to help businesses and communities become more healthy and sustainable. With a shared interest in helping others reduce waste and us as a company working hard to reduce waste it was the perfect fit.

Wanting to assist our customers get closer to becoming a Zero Waste Business, our line of recycling units is constantly growing and evolving to meet their needs. At Classic Displays, we want to ensure that regardless of what kind of business our customer runs, or what type of materials they recycle, we have a unit that suits the environment. From sleek smaller desk side units that can be used to recycle anything from batteries to confidential paper, to larger units for shared spaces, even units designed specifically for the recycling of coffee cups, we have everything to make recycling within an office environment the easy choice. And it’s not just businesses that work from an office that we have recycling solutions for. With a large number of exterior and interior recycling bins we have containers that would benefit large commercial properties, municipalities, warehouses, anything really.

For us it’s not only important to help our customers reduce waste in the work place, but it’s essential for us to practice what we preach. It’s easy enough for us to reduce waste as we manufacture the proper tools to do so, but we don’t stop there. With a strong commitment to sustainability we focus on manufacturing environmentally friendly products through the use of recycled materials. The majority of our site furniture is manufactured from recycled plastic and aluminum, even our holiday displays are manufactured with low power consumption LED lighting and we participate in a banner recycling program which keeps a number of old banners from ending up in landfills. That means all of our divisions are participating in some form of recycling and we are continually looking for ways to further our recycling initiatives.

Working towards becoming a Zero Waste Business is not only important for the environment in helping to reduce litter and pollution and cutting greenhouse gases, but it’s also beneficial to the business itself. Zero waste businesses save money, are more efficient and create jobs and more value for their business and the community. With those kinds of benefits and the tools and resources available to assist you, why not take your first step to becoming a Zero Waste Business today!
