At College City Beverage we believe in doing our part to make the world a better place for all our families.
We have over 10 tons of cardboard from packaging and point-of-sale and 6.5 tons of shrink wrap that holds packages together on pallets. We recycle ALL of it. Out of code product isn’t wasted either, it is used to make biogas which is used to power engines that create electricity, the leftover packaging also recycled.
Our warehouse features LED motion lighting throughout so that if someone is not in the area the lights shut off cutting our usage by about 30% from standard lighting.
Community Solar Garden currently produces about 80% of the electricity we use. Soon we will be installing rooftop solar panels which will help us to get to 100% of our usage.
The Controlled Environment Warehouse (CEW) set points in the winter are set lower than in the summer so instead of producing cold air, we use the cold air from the outside to chill water down. The water is then pumped throughout the building and the cold air is blown off the water to cool the CEW.
We have a reclamation system in our truck wash that filters the water four times and is used to wash the vehicles. The water is then reused to clean our vehicles cutting our water usage from the city significantly.
We are always looking for ways to reroute our fleet for higher efficiency to burn fewer gallons of fuel. We also feature fuel-efficient vehicles in our sales department.
