Our signs are printed on recyclable posterboard and corrugated plastic and we use inks that are titled 'eco friendly' inks for screen printing signs. You will see a recycling symbol at the bottom of all our signs.
Our scrap and waste is recycled and reused and we are working to achieve a zero limit landfill goal (although that goal has been tough to achieve).
Recycling Information: recycle Number 5 Plastics PP (polypropylene) are found in some yogurt containers, syrup bottles, ketchup bottles, caps, straws, medicine bottles & corrugated signage. Number 5 plastics can be recycled through some curbside programs. Recycled into signal lights, battery cables, brooms, brushes, auto battery cases, ice scrapers, landscape borders, bicycle racks, rakes, bins, pallets, trays Polypropylene has a high melting point, and so is often chosen for containers that must accept hot liquid. It is gradually becoming more accepted by recyclers.
Our company is located in a school that was shut down, not new construction taking more Iowa farm land out of production. We have maintained the facility so that it continues to be used by community youth groups for recreational activities.
We have recently invested in an ink reclaimer so that we are not sending our ink waste into our septic system (even if it is eco friendly ink).
And our facility emits no significant levels of pollution in our manufacturing process.
