With the goal of zero waste production throughout our offices and warehouse, Pete Pappas and Sons has struck a partnership with Rubicon Global to train our team and continue to promote proper waste diversion. Sustainability has always been a core value of our business, and we selected this forward-thinking partner in the journey to help get our facility to zero waste.
In addition to a calculated waste audit, the sustainability experts on the Rubicon team employed the RUBICONMethod™ to ensure future success in diverting our waste from landfills into a recycling and composting program. The RUBICONMethod™, a six-step system for setting up and maintaining a successful business recycling program, has helped us train our employees about proper disposal, the dangers of recycling contamination, and implement an organics program in our office. Following the familiar acronym “DIVERT” the six steps stand for Determine, Initiate, Vocalize, Eliminate, Roll-out and Track. These 6 steps will help us get to our goal.
Rubicon's mission is to end waste based on the 3 R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle). Now, our team at Pete Pappas and Sons is equipped with a practical guide to improve our waste programs and initiatives on waste reduction.
