Green – and lean – manufacturing has always been a focus for CleanRiver. Our recycling bins and containers are made with environmentally responsible materials that contain the highest possible percentage of recycled content available.
We are constantly improving our manufacturing process to reduce lead times and provide better quality products at lower costs. Throughout the process, we reclaim, recycle and reuse any cut-offs and debris. Sending this minimal scrap back to suppliers means it can be recycled into HDPE lumber or consumable products. Combined with facility recycling and organics collection, we have achieved a zero waste diversion rate of 97%.
Our products exceed EPA guidelines for post-consumer recycled content and support LEED Certification Credits and BOMA BESt initiatives. And we also take back our recycling bins when they have reached the end of their life, so the materials can be recycled yet again.
