The Rodon Group, a high volume, custom plastic injection molder, became designated as a “Landfill Free Facility” by Sustainable Waste Solutions, LLC, making them one of the first molding facilities in its area to receive this certification.
Sustainable Waste Solutions, LLC (SWS) provides a Landfill Free alternative for recycling, waste transportation, and disposal to companies of all sizes and across a broad range of industries throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania, Lehigh Valley and Delaware. Using a state‐of‐the‐art Energy‐from‐Waste resource recovery facility, they generate enough electricity from waste to power tens of thousands of homes per day in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Over the past 25 years, the Energy from Waste (EfW) industry has developed state-of-the-art technology that makes EfW one of the cleanest forms of energy generation. The advanced technology in combusting waste is the air quality (emission) control system. EfW facilities meet or exceed the strictest federal standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and employ a multi-step process to achieve superior environmental performance.
“We have immensely enjoyed our two year relationship with SWS. We think very highly of their technical abilities, as well as the close, personal relationship we have developed with Scott Woodrow (COO) and Dieter Scheel (Business Development Manager),” said Lowell Allen, Sr. VP of Manufacturing at The Rodon Group. “We are more than happy to no longer have to haul trash to be land filled and on top of that, we’re saving money! “
Rodon’s green initiatives make it a leader in the plastics industry. Its manufacturing process minimizes packaging, transportation costs, waste, water consumption and energy. All scrap is reused and recycled and Rodon uses only non toxic colorants and resins.
All lubricants and cleaners used in Rodon’s processing are non‐toxic and no hazardous chemicals are used in the plant. Recent, ongoing efforts include installation of plant‐wide motion sensor activated high‐efficiency lighting to help save on energy costs and upgraded the facility with three new cooling towers. Rodon's customers are offered a returnable/reusable packaging program and all employees are able to participate in a recycling program including a drop off for any used lights, electronics, computer equipment, batteries.
