Sustainability

– Our Commitment to the Environment –

Refuel your world.


Sustainability is the broadest, most inclusive conception of environmental protection or stewardship. Sustainability is about meeting the needs of the present without compromising opportunities for the future. It’s not just about maintaining the health and productivity of the natural environment but it’s also maintaining the health and productivity of the social environment.

At ARR, we are committed to this idea. Our goal is to direct every possible pound of material away from landfills.

Steel


Steel is the most recycled material in North America. Cans, construction scraps, automobiles, and appliances can be turned right back into the steel that can be used in the same applications.

Paper


Over 33% of new paper is produced with recycled fiber. By weight, paper comprises more than 33% of all recyclables collected in the US, nearly 45 million tons in 2010.

Plastic


Recycling one ton of plastic bottles saves the equivalent energy usage of a two-person household for one year.
