SmartSource Computer & Audio Visual Rentals Announces Corporate Green Initiatives
12/12/2013
SmartSource Computer & Audio Visual Rentals (Hauppauge, NY) is going full speed ahead when it comes to its green initiative. Right now, company-wide, SmartSource is recycling an estimated 20% of all its cardboard, paper and electronic waste. Equally important, the company has reduced its overall waste considerably.

In the first quarter of 2013, the company had already recycled over 22 tons of waste. That high level of recycling continued through the second and third quarters and is continuing through the fourth quarter. As of October 31st, SmartSource has recycled 109,000 lbs. of cardboard/paper and 20,000 lbs. of electronics. In 2012, during a corporate-wide warehouse cleanup campaign, the company had recycled 169,240 lbs. of cardboard/paper and 40,000 pounds of electronics.

In addition, SmartSource has instituted various green capital improvements including the replacement of high energy consuming light bulbs and ballasts in the corporate warehouse with energy efficient lighting. This measure has resulted in a reduction in energy consumption of over 5300 kWh and a 39% reduction in SmartSource’s lighting bill.

Currently, SmartSource Rentals has issued a mandate for all of its 21 branches across the country. It is to recycle all cardboard and e-waste, reduce waste wherever possible, and purchase items made from recycled materials such as recycled paper products and compostable paper cups.

Additionally, SmartSource is transitioning to more energy-efficient vehicles with 40% of its fleet now composed of diesel-powered Dodge and Mercedes Benz Sprinters. Further demonstrating its full-throttle commitment to protecting the environment and preserving natural resources is SmartSource’s appointment of Operations Analyst Meredith Lewis, a LEED Green Associate, to oversee its eco-friendly corporate culture.
