Coca-Cola Recycling LLC, a division of Coca-Cola Refreshments, visited CHEP corporate headquarters this month to reinforce the value of recycling with employees. Using their Recycling Education Vehicle, Coca-Cola Recycling helped to educate CHEP associates on the importance of recovering used bottles and cans in a fun and interactive way that includes videos, games, contests and prizes.
“We are pleased to work with CHEP, a company that holds that same vision for their products, and we’re excited to have an opportunity to talk to their employees about the good things that happen when they recycle.”
“At Coca-Cola, we envision a world where our used beverage containers are not regarded as waste, but as a valuable resource,” said John Burgess, president of Coca-Cola Recycling LLC. “We are pleased to work with CHEP, a company that holds that same vision for their products, and we’re excited to have an opportunity to talk to their employees about the good things that happen when they recycle.”
CHEP works to ensure material recovery, reuse and recycling efforts are optimized by maintaining ownership of its assets. In addition to establishing clear accountability and control once a pallet reaches its end of life. CHEP also promotes employee recycling, both at home and in the work place. Recently, thanks to the dedicated recycling efforts of the information systems team, CHEP recycled two full trailer loads of electronics out of the CHEP USA offices and Data Center.
Candice Herndon, Director, Environmental and Regulatory Affairs, CHEP Americas, said; “Part of the CHEP sustainability commitment is to partner with our employees, suppliers, customers, service providers and other key environmental stakeholders to jointly achieve the highest possible environmental standards. This event allowed one of our key customers to help our employees learn more about the importance of material recycling within a sustainable supply chain.”
