To be a Green Dealer means to be an environmentally sustainable dealership. Some things we focus on in our dealership include waste management, water conservation, recycling, and energy efficiency! One of our most recent "Green Initiatives" was the installation of 6 water bottle refill stations throughout different parts of our dealership. Along with this, we've encouraged staff members to bring reusable water to work to cut down on plastic waste. In fact, we give each employee a reusable water bottle of their own upon hire to encourage the use of these fountains. To this day, we've been able to divert over 50,000 plastic water bottles from our landfills.
Another thing we are big on here at Berger is recycling. From paper to plastic, to cardboard - we have in-house recycling units that help us remain sustainable with our recyclable waste. Another item we are big on is recycling tires. Yes, you read correctly, tires! It's no secret that tires take up a great deal of space. That's why we work hard to make sure they don't end up in landfills! With the help of J and C Tires, we are able to recycle all of our old tire scraps to create products such as rubber asphalt or playground turf.
At Berger, We are proud to hold the "Green Dealer" title! By continuously making greener choices, we're able to express our gratitude and help make a better future for our planet!
