Kyocera Communications Collects San Diego Recycling Award
Kyocera Communications has been handed a recycling award from the City of San Diego's Environmental Services Department.
During 2011, the company recycled over 26,730 pounds of paper, plastic and electronic waste, enabling it to substantially lower its carbon footprint, reports Wireless News.
Eric Anderson, senior vice president and general manager of sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications, said: "We continue to find new ways to help our environment every year, such as further improving our recycling of materials and water."
As part of its efforts, the company recycled roughly 2,500 pounds of mixed paper, while beverage cans were also removed on a nightly basis and taken away for re-use.
It comes after the Nassau Guardian reported that Bahamas firm Custom Computers has now shipped 10 palates of used ink toners out of the country as part of its sustainability project.
These products will be recycled in the US by HP.
