As a leading recycler of precious metals, Metallix is continually implementing ways for creating a more sustainable precious metal economy and contribute to a more environmentally conscious world.
ACTING RESPONSIBLY AS A MEMBER OF A GLOBAL COMMUNITY
At Metallix, we’re committed to being environmental stewards, operating in a sustainable, environmentally conscious way every day. Sustainable working practices improve the quality of all our lives, protect our ecosystem and preserve natural resources. That’s why we’re taking steps to ensure that our long-term strategy is fully aligned with our sustainability goals.
WHAT WE’RE DOING WITHIN OUR FACILITIES
In addition to our community clean-up efforts:
- We have switched to motion-activated LED lighting in our facilities
- We’ve begun adding electric vehicles to our fleet
- We’re working towards waste reduction goals
- We’re working with our suppliers to build partnerships that meet their own sustainability goals.
ADOPT-A-CITY STREET PROGRAM
As part of Pitt County’s Adopt-A-City Street program, Metallix employees take time out of their daily roles to pick up litter along Industrial Boulevard.
These quarterly events benefit everyone. They help provide a cleaner, more pleasant environment for the local community, reduce plastic pollution, increase awareness of environmental issues within our workforce, and foster a company-wide commitment to the environment that goes beyond Metallix.
MAKING CHANGE HAPPEN
As part of our commitment to both the environment and our local community, we began hosting clean-up events around Greenville, North Carolina in 2021. The first was for World Ocean Day and this year’s event took place at River Park North, as part of Plastic Free July.
The refinery and laboratory both closed to allow our employees to take a paid environmental service day, which included trail maintenance and litter pick-ups throughout the park. Over 200 Metallix employees and family members took part in this year’s event, removing over 1,000 pounds of debris.
BUILDING ON SUCCESS
The 2023 Metallix Environmental Stewardship event will be held on Monday April 10th. We will continue to invest our passion and resources to make a difference and in doing so, we hope to inspire other businesses and the community to also invest in a future for all.
‘Success is best when it is shared.’
