Greenville, South Carolina – Softbox, a global provider of temperature-control packaging for the life science and logistics industries, has launched a new Green Recycling Service across the USA and Canada to provide its customers with a hassle-free way to dispose of their temperature control packaging waste and improve their eco-sustainability performance.
The new Green Recycling Service for BioPharma, provided by Softbox, manages packaging waste, such as used pallets, EPS foam and corrugated components. Instead of disposing of these pharmaceutical packaging components along with the rest of their scrap destined for landfill, companies can now have these components recycled into materials that will be used to manufacture new products for other industries.
The collection of the packaging waste and delivery to the recycling centre is a one-phone-call, one-fee service that is fully-managed by Softbox and delivered in partnership with a national partner which is a specialist in the manufacturing and recycling of packaging materials.
“Softbox is highly committed to supporting its customers and providing cold chain packaging solutions that reduce waste and their impact on the environment,” said John Hammes, general manager of Softbox, US and Canada.
“Our new Green Recycling Service allows us to go even further – by ensuring a sustainable alternative for ‘end of life’ temperature control packaging waste. Our US and Canadian customers can now significantly reduce their landfill impact and potentially reduce the cost they are paying today for non-sustainable waste. This program will not only benefit Softbox’s green priorities, it will also help our BioPharma customers achieve their own sustainability objectives, reporting, and scores.
“With our exciting partnership now in place and serving several of our clients, our customers just need to make one phone call to Softbox, and we will arrange the collection and recycling of all their temperature control packaging waste – taking the time and effort out of their green initiative for just one cost-effective all-inclusive fee.”
