Last week, in recognition of the 50th Earth Day, Kuusakoski Recycling joined individuals and organizations around the world in celebration of the earth and what can be done to preserve the planet.
Mandi Rehder, CEO of Kuusakoski, US, said, “Recycling is an essential component in the health of both the environment and the global economy. It is our hope that the role recycling plays in the preservation of the earth and its many resources will be recognized for generations to come.”
The Kuusakoski companies are a family owned, over 100-year-old, global leader in recycling. Its U.S. team has seen many changes within the industry over the past few years. It continues to adapt to new challenges to make it a stronger and more viable organization.
Kuusakoski and Vintage Tech’s three U.S. locations have been deemed “essential,” continuing operations and normal business hours.
Each year, according to Kuusakoski and Vintage Tech, the U.S. scrap recycling industry processes 138 million metric tons of materials, transforming society’s outdated and obsolete products and materials into useful raw materials needed to produce new products. In doing so, the scrap recycling industry has made great savings in both energy and natural resources and thus has had a positive impact on the environment.
Recycling reduces energy consumption and the emission of greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change, while helping to maintain a steady supply of raw materials for the U.S. and global economies.
