Recleim LLC has announced that it will serve as the recycling services provider for Pepsi Bottling Ventures (PBV), the largest privately held Pepsi-Cola bottler in North America.
PBV will work with Recleim to properly dispose of retired cold drink vending machines, fountain units, glass door merchandisers, and other parts and components. Recleim’s exclusively licensed recycling technology enables it to recover 95% of PBV equipment by weight.
“Recleim has the technology and process in place to maximize the amount of materials recovered from the items we retire. Our objective is to work with a company that shares our passion for responsible stewardship of the environment.”
“Pepsi Bottling Ventures is committed to protecting the environment and that means ensuring our machines are recycled according to the highest standards,” said Roy Taylor, marketing equipment manager at Pepsi Bottling Ventures. “Recleim has the technology and process in place to maximize the amount of materials recovered from the items we retire. Our objective is to work with a company that shares our passion for responsible stewardship of the environment.”
Under the agreement, Recleim will transport retired equipment from PBV’s central distribution center in Winston-Salem, NC, to its flagship recycling facility in Graniteville, SC for processing. Recleim will also provide PBV with a certificate of destruction, a traceable document that guarantees all goods received by Recleim are recycled in a way that meets or exceeds federal, state and local requirements.
“Companies want to feel confident that when they recycle equipment and parts, it will be done right,” said Doug Huffer, president and general manager of Recleim. “Since not every recycler has the same capabilities, it’s crucial to work with one that can reduce the release of harmful substances – such as chlorofluorocarbons – into the environment. We provide that level of assurance which is why companies like Pepsi Bottling Ventures turn to us for their recycling needs.”
Recleim’s rigorous recycling process ensures that emissions of ozone-depleting substances are minimized. The company’s 110,000 square-foot recycling center can process more than 60 million pounds of equipment annually – including household appliances, HVAC units and other devices.
