Waste Recycling
Description of Action: 
Berje Inc. has partnered with Kearney Steel (Newark, NJ) for our Drum Recycling Program. About 125 Trailers with 45,000+ containers were picked up from Berje's facility for recycling. The Recycling includes Steel, Fiber, Aluminum & Plastic Containers. Trailer weights vary but at least 9,000 lbs. X 125 Trailers = 1,125,000 Lbs. of waste. Without this partnership and companies like Kearney Steel it would could be up to $1,000 to dispose of each trailer

Waste Other
Description of Action: 
Berje's Inc. generates about 100 Scrap Pallets/7,500 Lbs. of wood per week. Many companies will dispose of these pallets as they are a compostable item OR they will sell them to a company that turns them into mulch. Berje now offers all scrap pallets at no cost to a number of trucking companies. The pallets find new life as pallets again. Because they are given for free pallets with small board damages are repaired and are able to be reused once more. At one point Berje had to pay for the disposal of the damaged pallets. Damaged pallets could fill a dumpster each month. $400 X 12 = $4,800 7,600 Lbs of pallet each week X 50 weeks
