LEEDing The Way in Green Innovation
One of the highlights of our environmental practices is our super efficient LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certified recycling facility in Clackamas. Being a LEED certified building shows that a third party verifies that our building is operating the way it was designed and intended to run. We are also now included in a list of superior companies recognized around the globe for their achievement in green building. We chose to build this facility on a site that was contaminated by the previous owners. Throughout the process we removed more than 1,750 cubic yards of contaminated soil and debris. We proudly rehabilitated the area with clean soil and gravel before building. This project was meant to be green from the beginning making a LEED certification important to us. As a LEED Gold Certified building now we demonstrate leadership, innovation, environmental stewardship and social responsibility to our community.
