How We Are Doing Our Part
At Steward’s Plumbing Inc., we are dedicated to being productive and valued members of our community. This is reflected in our support of local charities and non-profit efforts, the recognition we have received for our contributions, and most recently in our commitment to recycling whenever possible. We are proud to announce that in addition to recycling brass, copper, and other metals from damaged fixtures or other projects, our recycling program has now been expanded to include cardboard and paper products! Though advances in technology also help to minimize the waste generated by any business, we believe it is extremely important to do everything we can to help our friends and neighbors.
Better for Business & Better for Everyone
Just about everyone knows that recycling is better for the environment, but what you might not know is how much it helps to stimulate the local economy as well! When, for example, a copper pipe is thrown away, it ends up in a landfill and its value is lost. If that same copper pipe is recycled, not only do we get to benefit from its value, we are also contributing to jobs responsible for sorting, processing, and manufacturing the recycled goods.
Just a few of the groups that are bolstered by a healthy recycling program include:
- Manufacturers of recycling equipment
- Facilities that collect, process, and prepare recycled materials
- Facilities across industries that use recycled materials to make new products
According to the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, industries that handle the specialized processing required by recycling employ as much as 10 times as many jobs as waste disposal solutions like incineration or landfills. The companies that focus on manufacturing using the old products could stand to gain even more. Not to mention, of course, that this is a system that builds on itself – the more a community recycles, the more resources they are able to devote to better and more efficient infrastructures, and the more everyone is able to save.
Creating a Blueprint for a Brighter Future
Our team is passionate about doing everything in our power to contribute to a better community for everyone. We hope that our efforts can serve as inspiration for fellow businesses and groups in the area so that we can move toward better, more sustainable practices together.
