Classroom Essentials Online and the Environment: Our Recycling Program

Posted by Ryan Owens on Jan 1st 2012

At CEO, we care deeply about the environment and preserving it for our future generations.

Please read more below about our efforts to recycle & reuse all possible materials.

At our main warehouse in the Holly Springs area of Canton, GA, we have refuse dumpsters dedicated to recyclable materials. All cardboard & fiber, recyclable plastics, and other recyclable materials are separated from non-recyclable material and sent for recycling. We save all pallets from our incoming shipments to reuse for outbound customer shipments. To reduce our consumption of new packing and packaging materials, we re-use all possible inbound packaging when we ship out to our customers. We make sure that the components which make up our Advantage Chairs & Tables can also be recycled at the end of a product’s life. This is just one more step we take to not only reduce our waste footprint now, but well into the future also.

We are blessed to live and work near the foot of the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains, and our proximity to such beautiful country reminds us every day how crucial it is to make every effort to preserve our environment for our own and all future generations. When you receive a shipment from us, please take the time to recycle all the packaging that you’re able to as well. If you’re not sure what to do with extra pallets for instance, often times it’s as simple as placing a “Free” ad on your local website – and usually someone will want them right away. Remember that any cardboard used as packaging in a shipment from us to you can usually be recycled as well. If you have entire boxes, those are generally easy to find a home for via Craigslist as well. Remember that clean poly and plastic packing materials can be stored for re-use, too!
