Being Cleaner & Greener

How can you store industrial products cleanly in a large warehouse? How can you provide ventilation in that warehouse yet minimize outside dust and debris? How can you “go green” when many of the products you manufacture are petroleum-based and offer limited recycling options?

These questions were recently posed to the NewAge Industries team, who accepted the challenge of coming up with solutions. Our warehouse had its issues. Dust settled on the storage racks and on boxes of tubing and hose. Dirt would easily enter the warehouse when dock doors were opened for ventilation purposes. And we were throwing away a lot of recyclable trash. Changes needed to be made.

Our first step was to address the dust that had accumulated throughout the warehouse. We needed to make sure we could store and deliver clean products. So, the concrete floors of the warehouse were sanded, cleaned, and sealed. Each item in the warehouse was wiped down . . . every rack, every box, every storage container. Recently instituted procedures for regular floor cleanings ensure that dust is kept to a minimum.

New screen doors were installed at each dock to deal with the ventilation issue. These doors operate on tracks just like our existing solid dock doors (similar to overhead garage doors) and are raised for deliveries and shipments as needed. The screen is a fine mesh type that keeps insects and dirt particles outside where they belong while letting air circulate.

NewAge Industries launched a recycling program that’s easy for team members to follow and offers huge cost savings in the way of trash removal. All paper, cardboard, aluminum, most glass and plastic containers, and even shrink wrap are single-stream recycled, which means all these items can be tossed into a single container. It’s a great way for the company to participate in the green movement and keep recyclable products out of landfills. It also costs less to have recyclable trash removed, so we’re able to keep operating costs down and thereby finance future improvements.
