Tuf-Tite™ polymer Septic and Drainage products are 100% recyclable.
PRODUCTION SCRAP At the Tuf-Tite™ manufacturing facility, we are able to recycle and use, in-house, 99+% of our production waste.
PACKAGING All packaging used on Tuf-Tite™ products is made from at least 80% post industrial or post consumer waste material. In-bound packaging waste is sent to recycling facilities.
OTHER PLANT GREEN FEATURES * Motion sensitive lighting installed throughout our facility ensures lights do not remain on in areas not in use. Potential “Green”: • Large fans in our warehouse move air, reducing heating costs • Production restarts are staggered and done at non-peak times to minimize energy surges • Storm water from non-permeable surfaces is redirected to a wildlife wet-land retention area • Production "chiller" water is cleaned and recirculated as part of our production process
