Beatrice Recycling Programme

At Beatrice, we believe in doing our part to help the environment. It has been a long process to ensure that everything is done correctly, from product packaging, sales and order forms, as well as the office-recycling program. Below are just a few ways how we are doing our part.

Product Packaging

Careful consideration is given when new products are formulated at Beatrice, and this especially is true for the packaging aspect. Recyclable and recycled materials are always chosen in the production of any Beatrice product, whether it is shipping cartons or containers, Beatrice makes sure that the materials used are of a recyclable nature and can be recycled by most recycling centers.  Beatrice Technologies also plays a major factor in recycling, with the recycling of various old technology products located at a customer premises. We will also recycle old copper cabling, cardboard, and plastic bags that patch cords and computer equipment is wrapped in. Nothing gets thrown in a generic dumpster. If no recycling is present at customer premises, we will haul it away ourselves and use our own recycling system. Here are some basic examples of what can be recycled from everyday usage.

*Terephihalate & High-Density Polyethylene Polyethylene: For those that get absolutely confused on what to do with these plastic grocery and bread bags, paper towel or bathroom toilet paper plastic wrappings, or even those bubble air packs in your shipments you received, these should be all gathered in a kitchen plastic trash bag, then use the Store Drop-off where plastic bags are deposited when you walk in.  So many throw these many forms of plastic pouches and wrappings in the trash because normal curbside recycling can’t process these, but your local Store Drop-off will, and the facilities where these ultimately go to are made to accept them.  Please, don’t throw these many plastic bags and wrappings in the trash, you have an option, and that is the Store Drop-off.

What can be recycled through Store Drop-Off?

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) #6

The use of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) #6, which is what packing peanuts are made of, are not allowed for packaging and shipping at Beatrice. If we do receive this material from our vendors, we either try and reuse it, but never throw it in general trash, as this material is not readily accepted at recycling facilities.

Office Recycling

Employees at Beatrice participate in the company recycling program and are encouraged not to waste paper. Separate bins are installed in Beatrice offices: Blue for recyclable materials, and gray for non-recyclable materials. This program has become very successful with employees and has created awareness to our environment and surroundings.

Business Forms

To help eliminate paper waste and printing costs, most of the new business forms used for purchase orders, sales orders and other internal forms are now produced and stored in Adobe Acrobat™, which is a document production program used primarily for paperless forms.

Recyling Codes

Comprehensive recycling codes to help costumers, vendors, internal Beatrice employees and contractors.  A handy downloadable copy is available on the bottom of the page, as form BI42208.
