Waste Reduction and Recycling

  • Brodart recycles 100% of our wood waste via use by secondary sources.  In 2008, 376 tons of wood waste was used by a secondary source for fuel.  Additionally, 20 tons of sawdust was used by local farms for animal bedding.

  • 100% of Brodart's steel scrap is recycled.

  • 100% of waste cardboard is recycled.

  • In November of 2008, Brodart implemented an in-house paper recycling program, striving to recycle 100% of paper used in office and manufacturing processes.  Since then, Brodart recycles approximately 1 ton of paper waste per month.
