Consumer Waste

UPI’s goal is to reduce our environmental footprint. We are committed to protecting and improving the environment by recycling commonly used materials and reducing the amount of waste that is produced in the workplace.

Aided by new technologies at recycling facilities and process changes within UPI, 2009 saw a resurgence in many of UPI’s waste reduction efforts. In addition to issuing its first Waste Minimization Policy, UPI also resurrected its consumer waste recycling program with key improvements to employee education, uniformity, and simplicity to ensure the program’s success and sustainability.
