Recycling is another focus for us in our effort to reduce our environmental impact. Maximus’ recycling efforts include:
- Recycling glass jars used for instant coffee
- Recycling packaging film
- Recycling cardboard boxes
- Utilizing water used in our natural decaffeination process for external equipment cleaning
- Burning coffee bean waste to produce energy to run our boilers, thereby reducing our reliance on natural gas. Most coffee companies send their coffee bean waste to landfills.
All of these efforts not only benefit the environment, but can also benefit out customers, as they mean our customers can include the EPA Green Power Partner and Green-e certified labels on coffee produced in Maximus facilities.
