Lake Business Products has always placed an emphasis on sustainability, Green initiatives and being environmentally responsible in the recycling and disposal of our products or waste.
Over the past twenty years, we have reduced our waste to less than one percent of our total throughput. Annually, over 250 tons of materials are kept out of the landfill.
As an organization, we are committed to constantly finding ways to improve. All paper is collected weekly. All aluminum cans are collected and donated to a local fire department for the burned children program. Our plastic water bottles and glass are taken to a recycling facility.
On average the recycling of 1 ton of cardboard saves 17 trees, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, 7000 gallons of water, and 4100 kilowatt hours of electricity. The cardboard LBP Recycled saved over 2000 trees, over 350 cubic yards of landfill space, 700 barrels of oil, 840,000 gallons of water, and almost 1/2 million kilowatt hours of electricity.
