E.E. Ward Moving & Storage has teamed up with EcoRewards Recycling to turn their office “green”. E.E. Ward developed a customized recycling program based on the number of employees, the square footage of the building, and a previous month’s waste invoice. This program included a variety of recycling bins located within the office building as well as a large recycling dumpster located just outside the facility. As well as providing recycling bins for the office, E.E. Ward supplied materials to educate the entire staff on how to use the resources and build a successful recycling program. To push their recycling efforts even further, E.E. Ward picks up moving boxes from its customers and allows new customers to utilize the previously used boxes for their moves. Also, E.E. Ward supplies its customers with plastic crates to greatly reduce the number of cardboard boxes needed.
Since implementing their program in late fall of 2010, E.E. Ward has recycled over 2.6 tons of materials. This translates to a savings of 15500 kilowatt hours of energy or 18580 gallons of water. E.E. Ward will continue to be environmentally aware of their carbon footprint, and strive to make the moving business as green as possible.
