MONROE, Ohio, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Deceuninck North America, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality systems for windows, doors, interiors and outdoor living, is pleased to announce its recent partnership with JP Industrial (JPI), a GreenCircle Certified company, to introduce a comprehensive recycling program for its customers. JPI is the largest recycler of PVC materials nationwide.
As part of the program, JPI collects end cuts and other scraps from Deceuninck's fabricators and provides the recycled content to Deceuninck so that the company can reintroduce it into the manufacturing process. Deceuninck launched the program on September 1.
"Deceuninck's commitment to sustainability is evident in our cradle-to-cradle approach," said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. "We have a zero waste goal, and our partnership with JPI will help us meet this goal by reclaiming unused product that might have otherwise ended up in the waste stream. We look forward to realizing the positive impact this recycling program will have on our customers and the building and construction industry at large."
GreenCircle provides third-party certification of sustainable aspects of products and manufacturing operations. Manufacturers, suppliers, regulators, and consumers can be assured that products labeled with the GreenCircle Certified mark have been thoroughly assessed and their claim verified.
In addition to the company's partnership with JPI, Deceuninck demonstrates its commitment to sustainability by sourcing recycling materials; manufacturing long-lasting, low-maintenance and energy-efficient building materials that can be fully recycled at the end of life; and utilizing smarter methods for shipping and delivery of its products.
For several consecutive years, Deceuninck North America has received the Excellence in Pretreatment Award from the Butler County, Ohio Board of Commissioners and Department of Environmental Services. Award recipients are Significant Industrial Users, as defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which consistently meet all local, state and federal wastewater discharge standards and requirements. This award reflects the company's commitment to protecting and sustaining the quality of local streams and rivers for wildlife and the public.
