U.S. Bank Taps Eco2Go for Recycling
U.S. Bank is expanding its recycling program, and in the process, has been the impetus for the launch of Eco2Go Recycling Solutions LLC, an Ohio business that aims to provide a cost-effective recycling program for smaller work facilities.
Eco2Go will recycle cans and plastics from approximately 1,100 of the bank’s smaller facilities that, in the past, were deemed too small for traditional recycling services.
U.S. Bank is placing environmentally friendly Eco2Go portable recycling containers (pictured) at its smaller sites to collect recyclable materials, including those with plastic recycling symbols 1 through 7, aluminum, tin and other metal cans, plastic grocery bags and plastic bottles with lids. When the Eco2Go box is full, it will be picked up by UPS as part of a regular delivery or pickup at the branch, and then delivered to a nearby recycling center.
U.S. Bank expects more than 50,000 pounds of materials from its smaller sites to be recycled each year under the program.
In February last year, U.S. Bank selected Hara to provide it with comprehensive energy and resource management software.
The bank used Hara Environmental and Energy Management software to create a central repository that accesses its energy and environmental data on more than 2,200 of its owned and operated sites across 25 states.
