Orbus Has Recycled 90% of Its Waste in 2018
Orbus Exhibit & Display Group (Woodridge, IL) announced that the company has already surpassed its yearly environmental goals and increased its recycling to almost 90% for 2018. As of mid-year, Orbus had recycled 460,000 lbs. of cardboard, cores and paper and 135,000 lbs. of plastic.
Orbus’ recycling efforts have dramatically reduced its total waste being sent to landfills to only 10% -- after finding a company to recycle its wood waste. The company recycles fabrics, paper, aluminum, plastics, batteries, electronics, steel, wood pallets and skids and encourages all employees to do their part. Orbus has two full-time team members dedicated to the physical labor of recycling and several others dedicated to recycling program management.
“Orbus prints over 26,000 sq. ft. of display graphics alone each day,” said Jim Concannon, operations manager, "that coupled with other aspects of operations; we produce a lot of recyclable items. One of Orbus’ core values is to protect and preserve the environment and I am thrilled that our efforts have diverted even more from landfills in 2018.”
