02/02/2010 ~ On February 2, 2009, Keys Energy Services (KEYS) became one of the first local governmental agencies to launch an internal recycling program for its facilities. One year later, the program has helped to save the utility over $8,000 in waste disposal services.

Working in conjunction with Waste Management, KEYS provided recycling containers throughout KEYS’ facilities to encourage employees and customers to dispose of waste accordingly.

“Given recent technological breakthroughs, there is no longer a need to extensively sort recyclables and that makes it easier for everyone to play a role in helping the environment,” said Lynne Tejeda, KEYS’ General Manager & CEO.

Prior to implementing the recycling program, KEYS annually budgeted $16,000 for waste disposal. On the first anniversary of KEYS’ Recycling Program, the utility has saved $8,840.07 in waste disposal costs. Tejeda added that, “we have found the items which can be recycled to be far more extensive than those that cannot, and when you look at the bottom line recycling makes good business sense.”
