Murrey's Disposal Values
We recognize the importance of our continuing efforts to minimize our impact on the
environment by encouraging materials’ recycling and reuse; using waste to generate
clean, renewable energy; reducing our carbon footprint and use of fossil fuels; and
exploring alternatives to landfill disposal. DM Recycling’s sustainability efforts
extend beyond the environment; we also measure the positive impacts we have on the
communities we serve and the development and welfare of our employees.
As an environmental services company servicing the South Sound of beautiful Washington
State, sustainability is not a new concept for us. Over the years we have been
increasing the volume of recyclable material that we shift away from the waste stream.
Our recycling efforts recover valuable materials for reuse, and include the composting
of organic materials for reuse as a soil amendment.
We deploy route optimization
software and work to retrofit our existing equipment, lowering our overall carbon
footprint. Everything we do today is with an eye towards the future. We constantly
monitor and evaluate new technologies and programs that can enhance our commitment to
the environment and improve our competitive positioning. Within our industry, these
changes have historically been evolutionary in nature, but there is an enormous effort
currently being made in alternative technologies to reduce landfill disposal, reduce
greenhouse gas emissions and harness bio-fuels. Environmental, organizational and
financial sustainability initiatives have been key components of our success since our
founding. We remain committed to growing and expanding these efforts as our industry and
technology continue to evolve.
