Our Princeton, Indiana site performs many of the same functions as the operations division in Kentucky. By serving our Customer’s needs effectively, we have developed a mutually beneficial relationship. Our team members support and are included in the Customer’s ISO 14001 certification.
This site began operations in April 1996 and we are proud to say that since then, the demand for our services has continued to expand. We were able to accommodate our customer when they doubled their plant size and production. We also assisted them in achieving Zero landfill in 2005.
We are confident that we will continue to meet the increasing expectations of our Customer.
In Kentucky, there are a variety of services offered. Our Resource and Waste Management Departments are responsible for handing numerous commodities, such as cardboard, wood, metal, etc. Our Maintenance Steel Department supplies the metal used for maintenance work completed on our customer’s site.
Resource Management team members pick up the commodities in the plant, and transports them to a designated location. Once at this location, the commodities are segregated, packaged, and shipped to various approved vendors for resale. Some of the recyclable commodities we handle are: corrugated cardboard, metal, various plastics, wood, and paper products. Our team members track the commodities from pick up point to shipment destination for reporting purposes.
In December 1998, this department started supplying the metal used for maintenance work to our customer. The steel is delivered to our warehouse, where it is processed, loaded on modules, and then delivered. In 2005, this department won an award from our customer for “Outstanding Minority Development Performance”. Continued hard work and dedication from these team members helped them achieve the “2006 Business Partner Award”.
Our Waste Management Department is responsible for the timely collection of full and empty waste containers throughout the customer’s facility and safely transporting them to an accumulation area until shipment. Our team members are responsible for tracking thousands of waste containers annually. Our team members are also responsible for complying with the EPA and DOT regulations which include inspecting, manifesting, labeling containers, shipping, and reporting.
