WAVERLY, Fla., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HESCO's bin recycling program offers Florida's businesses an environmentally friendly, cash-compensation solution to the problem of tired, old, and broken harvest and field bins stacked and stored on many business properties.
HESCO, the just-in-time operating supplies procurement and provisioning cooperative, picks up unsafe, unusable, and unsightly plastic bins, cuts them up and ships them to the recycler, and provides a check to the business owner for the old worn-out bins.
"HESCO's recycling program has grown every year since 2006, when we began hauling away our customers' bins that were beyond repair," said Gap Kovach, HESCO CEO. "Since then, we've recycled over 65,000 bins -- keeping nearly six million pounds of plastic out of landfills!" HESCO will also pick up and recycle certain other unusable materials such as plastic drums and containers.
The company also offers a full line of Macro Plastics bins to replace the recycled inventory. These durable injection molded plastic bins are used by a wide range of industries from citrus processors and distributors to wineries, fisheries, law enforcement agencies, and any business or organization that needs to store or protect various products and supplies.
The bin recycling program is one of several earth-friendly HESCO product and service initiatives, including the newly introduced ProMaka line of 'green' janitorial products.
HESCO is the State's only authorized distributor of MacroBins®. The company began as a membership-based cooperative servicing growers and packers in the Florida citrus industry, expanding in recent years to become a leading supplier of industrial adhesives, packing films, corner boards, and janitorial supplies. Serving both cooperative members and non-member businesses across five southern states and California, HESCO uses its buying power to negotiate favorable purchasing terms, then receives, stores and redistributes those supplies on a just-in-time basis, reducing delivery lead times, prices, and storage costs for customers' operating inventories.
