MOORES HITS RECYCLING MILESTONE

October 26, 2011

Taylor, Mich. (October 26, 2011) -Moores Furniture Group, a Masco company, recently reached a milestone in an initiative to recycle all wood waste from its full-scope customers. Working alongside National Community Wood Recycling Project (NCWRP), UK-based Moores will now collect all wood waste to be either recycled or re-used.

To date, more than 60 tons of wood waste has been taken out of the waste stream, of which 96 percent has been recycled and the further four percent put into re-use. This activity helped create one permanent job and a huge number of volunteering and opportunities for disadvantaged people through NCWRP.

Due to its commitment to new initiatives to drive community development and help the environment, Moores Furniture Group is a continual supplier to large housing associations and developers such as The Hanover Housing Association.  This association was the first group to participate in the program and all its wood waste was collected and graded by NCWRP, then recycled or mulched to be turned into fuel. This is the first of many similar recycling programs Moores will run in the future.

Moores also has numerous waste management programs on site, and the Melamine Faced Chipboard products contain a high proportion of recycled material, including Moores' own chipboard waste. Moores tries to embed recycling into all aspects of its work environment and encourages the recycling of paper, cardboard, metal, plastic, ink cartridges, batteries, aerosol cans and waste oil.
