Green living has been a hot topic for over a decade now. Many companies and individuals have started thinking more about what they buy with regards to packaging, recycled materials used, and companies that support recycling. Some interesting facts about the every day products we use:

  • 80,000,000 Hershey’ Kisses are wrapped each day enough to cover 40 football fields
  • 1 quart of oil can contaminated 2,000,000 gallons of fresh water
  • A typical family uses 182 gallons of soda, 29 gallons of juice, 104 gallons of milk, and 26 gallons of bottled water per year
  • Motor Oil never wears out it just gets dirty

AMC Consolidated developed their company with the principle of recycling and reducing waste. This offers a better use of our products, employees’ time, cost savings, and the environment over all.  The amount of waste produced affects the planets soil, fresh and salt water, and the air.  It is important that we work together to do what we can when it comes to recycling. Many products can be taken to recycling centers in your area. Paper recycling can be done in Phoenix at International Paper. They have four locations in the Phoenix area for paper recycling. Metal recycling can be handled at Metal Management of Arizona.

Reducing, reusing, and recycling provides:

  • Protection
  • Expands jobs

  • Decreases pollution
  • Reduces Cost

There are many products that cannot be recycled with our recycled trash and need to be taken to a specific center hazardous waste center. At these centers they can handle items like batteries, electronics, paint, light bulbs, fluorescent, adhesives, motor oil etc. Please check your local waste management company for a listing of household hazardous waste.
