Waste Reduction with Waste Management
Diecutstickers.com Announces Community Partnership with Waste Management to Eliminate Vinyl Production Waste.
After a longstanding battle with large waste output due to the unique trappings of the vinyl sticker production process, Seattle-based Diecutstickers.com has coordinated efforts with Waste Management to institute a recycling plan that will eliminate nearly all vinyl, plastic, and wax materials previously sent directly to landfills. Currently in action, this initiative is a targeted effort to undo damage left by the byproducts of an industry marred by large trash runoff.
Diecutstickers.com was founded in 2002 and has since grown from a one-man basement operation to a flourishing sticker manufacturer with thousands of clients globally and locally. Unprecedented rapid success and growth has triggered a broader awareness and responsibility in President and Founder Daniel Diederichs who has made it his aim to wash away the stigma and negative environmental presence currently associated with his participation in the vinyl industry.
“It’s been a long time in the making but I am thrilled and quite proud to announce that Diecutstickers.com has become a community partner with Waste Management. We are now able to recycle nearly all of our production waste,” said Mr. Diederichs. “In an industry known for being chronic landfill abusers, we are very excited to now be able to act on our Green Thinking and execute a program that helps us minimize our landfill waste and help us secure the legacy of our business, the environment and generations to come.”
With an 8-cubic yard container and pickups twice monthly, the Diecustickers.com production staff is happy to see their garbage heading out at a faster pace and on a path to be reused. As a whole Diecutstickers.com will continue to raise awareness and encourage others in their industry to take ownership by instituting change toward greener process removing landfills from the vinyl equation.
