US: Ready Pac recognized for waste reduction efforts in facilities

Last week, the Irwindale Chamber of Commerce and the Environmental Committee awarded Ready Pac with the 2013 Waste Reduction Award. The award, presented by Irwindale Mayor Julian Miranda, is aimed to help raise awareness and educate the residential and business community in Irwindale and surrounding cities on how to achieve environmentally sound waste reduction. Director of West Coast Operations at Ready Pac, Santiago Pacheco, accepted the award on Ready Pac’s behalf, during the Environmental Awards Luncheon.

Speaking to Luncheon attendees, among whom were members of the Irwindale Chamber of Commerce and the Environmental Committee and local government officials, Pacheco outlined the path that led to what is now Ready Pac’s recycling program, generating 1/2 million dollars in revenue from recycling while also preventing further land fill cost to the city.

“Once we got the ball rolling, it opened our eyes to all the possibilities within our plants,” Pacheco said of Ready Pac’s program. “Our recycling platform allows us to see quantifiable results in waste reduction of corrugated, plastics and metals. Once you realize how quickly you can make a difference, it serves as motivation for us to find new ways to implement efficiencies. It really is a great feeling.”
