Recycling is becoming an extremely important part of our everyday lives, with benefits ranging from manufacturing to emissions reduction. Not only does recycling save huge amounts of energy, but also money as well. The United States is one of the largest producers of trash in the world with each person responsible for three-quarters of a ton each year! Nearly 75% of all our trash is considered recyclable, but only about 30% of it is diverted to the proper facilities. The ParkingZone has been dedicated for years to providing sustainably manufactured products at a lower cost to the customer. We offer nearly everything the parking industry can imagine, from waste and recycle diversion receptacles, to recycled rubber and plastic speed bumps and wheel stops. Come take a look at what recycled products and recycling can do for you!
In 2006, recycling saved enough carbon equal to driving 39 million cars for an entire year. That’s also the equivalent of just over 222 million barrels of oil. Recycling a single aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television set for three hours. Because aluminum has the property of being able to be recycled an infinite number of times, around 30% of all aluminum produced within the United States is sourced from recycled materials. With greenhouse gasses, global climate change and carbon emissions being important issues to many, it can easily be seen the advantages and benefits to increasing the recycling stream. The Greendrop recycling and waste diversion system was designed for waste management with high diversion rates and ease of use for the guest. The Greendrop system allows for unique or stock imaging for both the sorting photos as well as marketing space on the front of the unit.
Plastic is one of the materials that takes near an eternity to decompose naturally. On average, it should take plastic bottles 700 years to decompose in landfills. Different types of plastics account for around half of all recyclable waste in dumps, a waste of almost a quarter of a million bottles every hour. Using recycled plastics has become a hot commodity, and The ParkingZone is proud to show you some of the many products we offer that feature recycled plastics! Our 6 foot speed bumps and parking stops come in vibrant and eye-catching colors, and save the planet and your wallet at the same time! Also featuring recycled plastics in great colors are our Flexstake ground-mounted posts.
Tires are a very reusable material that lasts decades before naturally decomposing. After reaching their lifespan as tires, an estimated 300 million tires are disposed of or recycled each year. There are various ways of recycling tires, including vulcanization, in which they can become different by-products such as diesel fuel and kerosene. Our recycled rubber speed bumps, speed bump end caps, speed humps, and parking stops use shredded and remolded recycled rubber, in order to be sustainable, and long-lasting. We offer all of these products in single or pallet orders, so you are sure to find what you are looking for with the Parkingzone!
