Al-Mar Green Policy
We do our best to try and minimize the negative impact on our environment.
Waste PVC Material
All of our waste PVC material including cut offs and scratched material is sent to commercial recycler that reuses the product. Dealers are encouraged to bring their cut offs back to us for recycling.
All of our cardboard material is recycled. Wood blocking from our suppliers packaging is reused for our packaging to our customers. Pieces of wood that are too small to use for packaging are used by a local business for a wood burning furnace. We accept our cardboard and wood packaging back from our customers for reuse or recycling.
A word about 100% PVC vs Composite Fence/Deck Material
All of our products are 100% PVC and are 100% recyclable. Composite manufactures that make decking and fencing using recycled material such as Trex, Timbertech, and Fiberon, to their credit, do use household and commercial waste plastic and wood fiber in their products. While that is admirable, it usually does not allow it to be a lifetime product. Since their products are a mixture of wood, organic material, recycled and virgin plastic, they are not recyclable and will eventually end up at the landfill.
