Packaging and Waste Reduction

Reuse

For most projects, C.A. Reed uses reusable bulk packaging and containers:

  • UN Certified Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC's)
  • Recyclable drum containers

By using these bulk containers, close to a ton of plastic can be saved from landfills on a single project.

Reduce

Unfortunately, not all projects allow us to use bulk containers. C.A. Reed is in the process of converting the non-bulk packaging from wasteful plastic pails to flexible foil pouches. 

  • Pouches would reduce waste for every pail by 84%
  • Greater resource efficiency usage with foil pouches
