Sustainability

We see the physics behind sustainability, so you can see a better future.

Our obsession with making lighter, stronger shipping and waste container products that last a long time reduces waste and saves you money. It also saves the earth, which equals one stellar bonus.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

 

Recycling

We use over 60 MM lbs. of recycled post-consumer/industrial plastic which is diverted from the waste stream.

We help recover and reprocess our own products through our buyback program.

All of our products can be recycled into another Rehrig product at the end of its service.

We have the infrastructure to completely support cart, container and #2 HDPE reclamation.

We have multiple plastics processing facilities located strategically throughout the US.

We also recycle wood and paper scrap, eliminating 82 MM lbs. of waste (the equivalent of saving 703,000 trees each year).

We provide reusable and returnable packaging and containers.

Our Vision platform helps communities track recycling participation.

Asset Tracker allows for returnable/reusable platforms.

Automated recycling containers make it easier, more efficient and safer to recycle.

We offer the opportunity to close the loop on large-scale recycle, refuse and organics cart implementations by locally sourcing, processing and pelletizing post-consumer recycle content (PCR) for use in the manufacturing of a specific community or region’s Rehrig roll-out carts.

Green Value

Within our manufacturing process, many of our cooling systems are closed loop, minimizing the amount of make-up water required.

Our Zero Waste Production Processes ensure all scrap resin, packaging and byproduct is reused in our manufacturing, including recirculating cooling water and reclaiming hydraulic fluid.

Our short shipping lanes reduce our carbon footprint and emission generation.

Our Fusion system allows for improved safety and efficiencies as you move goods from distribution center to point of sale, resulting in reduced downtime and improved truck loadout.

Rehrig’s stackable bins and mechanical systems are helping workers to load more efficiently into trucks, resulting in fewer trucks on the road.
