Recycling and Environmental Concerns PDF Print Email

RecycleWhen we say "KI Containers: Reliable, Returnable, Recyclable" we show our commitment to the Environment and to recycling as much as we can to save sending material to landfills.

Our scrap steel is recycled and we also have an arrangement with the local high school's Welding class which lets them save on cost by using off-cuts of steel tubing and sheet that we cannot use in production. This relationship with the high school also includes "Work Experience" for suitable students who come to our plant after school to learn about production welding.

The vast majority of our products are Powder Coated using our automated line. This greatly reduces our use of Organic solvent based paints and therefore our Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions.

When we have to remove old coating from hangers or jigs, this is done in an emission controlled oven which reduces the amount of pollutants that are released into the atmosphere.
