Orbus Visual Communications (Woodridge, IL) has recycled 75% of its total waste and diverted over 10 million pounds from landfills as part of its commitment to environmental awareness, according to a press release.

In celebration of Earth Day, the company recognizes its environmental achievements over the course of a decade. Orbus recycled over 1.6 million pounds of cardboard, paper, aluminum, fabric, plastic, steel, wood and other materials in 2023 alone, eliminating 80% of its waste from landfills. The company has also built and maintained a recycling program that separates recycled waste into categories, including cardboard, paper, aluminum, fabric, steel and other. This year, Orbus is working with wood recycler Jimenez Pallets Inc. to turn wood waste into new pallets or mulch if the waste is not salvageable.

ISO 14001:2014 certified since 2010, the company headquarters uses motion-sensor LED lighting, water dispensers placed throughout the facility, automatic water fixtures and a product rental program to limit waste.

“It’s truly inspiring to witness Orbus’ evolution towards greater eco-consciousness,” Orbus Vice President of Marketing Natalie Whited is quoted in the release. “We’re proud of the progress we’ve made, but even more excited to continually implement more green practices in years to come.”
