Recognized for Sustainability
In order to make this process work, it was necessary for everyone at Diversified to participate in the effort, and significantly change how waste is processed within our plant. Previously, all waste went into a large compactor that was picked up and processed several times a week. Now, only label waste that will be turned into power pellets goes into the compactor. Other recyclable materials such as: clean paper, plastics, metal, packaging film, pallets and corrugated are collected and recycled separately.
Not only is this method of waste disposal attractive to buyers who believe in sustainable business practices… it’s the right thing to do! In fact, in 2019 Diversified was recognized with a special environmental award by TLMI for our innovative waste solution.
DLS is committed to continuing to find innovative ways to adopt sustainable label manufacturing practices that align with our corporate values and our commitment to distributors. In the future, we plan to expand this waste recycling program to our other facilities.
It is our hope that continuing to implement sustainability efforts like these will not only lessen our environmental footprint, but will help you with greater opportunities with your sustainability conscious customers.
