Located as we are in the heart of the Midwest’s farmland, sustainability is more of a tradition and culture to the people of Midland Davis than it is a new trend. Indeed, the entire premise of our business is based on the preservation of resources through the collection, sale and reuse of materials that would otherwise be wasted.
As highly visible leaders in this effort, Midland Davis actively encourages both business and individual consumers to actively participate in recycling efforts and to make wise choices when it comes to waste disposal. Both as a company and as individual employees of Midland Davis, we strive to set a positive example by our behaviors at work and in the community.
A few of the things we practice in our operations, as well as preach to our communities include:
» Programs to monitor and save both water and power
usage within our facilities » Optimization of our pick-up and delivery routes for
maximum fuel savings » Use of ethanol blend or diesel fuels within company
vehicles. » Recycling of all Midland Davis office papers » Use of recycled paper and other recycled products
whenever feasible » Support of public campaigns that encourage
Our interest and efforts at sustainability extend beyond environmental concerns. We consider sustainability to include the positive impacts we have on the communities we serve, the safety and welfare of our employees and the maintenance of our company’s financial health. We are committed to expanding these efforts, as well.
