Go Green with OnTrac and our Customers!

Posted on Apr 22, 2013 10:40:00 AM

Today, more than ever, there is a focus on the need for “Going Green” at the corporate level.  OnTrac Customer, C.W. Driver, understands the need for social responsiveness and sustainability as it relates to building and construction.  This focus results in many adaptive re-use, renovation and modernization techniques on smaller, new construction projects.  C.W. Driver, a premier builder serving the Western United States since 1919, has established a Special Projects Group, Driver SPG, in order to become a player in this expanding market.

Historically C.W. Driver has not targeted these projects, specializing instead on large-scale new construction and project management.  However, with the rising focus on sustainability, C.W. Driver and Driver SPG are capitalizing on this opportunity to stay at the forefront of these efforts.

As leaders in General Contracting and Construction Management services, they remain on the cutting-edge across a broad spectrum of industries including education, healthcare/biomedical, entertainment, retail, tenant improvement, and hospitality. Landmark projects, historical renovations, and occupied campus programs have distinguished C.W. Driver as leaders in their field.

Driver SPG is a standalone company headquartered in Anaheim, California and serves all of C.W. Driver’s key regions: Los Angeles, Orange, Ontario, Ventura, San Diego, and the Inland Empire.  Operating with less overhead, Driver SPG provides cost-effective project delivery without sacrificing the high level of quality and service that has made C.W. Driver the leading construction firm in Southern California.

Driver SPG clients benefit from enhanced efficiency and flexibility.  OnTrac understands the importance of these standards and is willing to go the extra mile for our customers like, Driver SPG. 

Cecilia Ulloa, Office Manager for Driver SPG, shares, “We have been using OnTrac services daily for over a year and are very happy with the service.”  Ulloa boasts, “OnTrac has been wonderful for all of our shipping needs!”

Driver SPG has access to C.W. Driver’s advanced technological resources including Building Information Modeling (BIM), and proven cost and time management systems.  

“We are a business that also believes in using environmental safe products and have a recycle bin,” Ulloa states.  “Until OnTrac, I had not found anyone else who would recycle these for us.”

OnTrac offers a recycling program through our supplier, Canyon Computer Supplies, which allows our customers to recycle their empty printer cartridges.  Customers can send their empty cartridges directly to OnTrac and, in turn, Canyon Computer Supplies will pick up these empties to be recycled. Another option is to go directly to http://tonerrecycle.net/ where customers can select a recycling option that best meets their needs.

OnTrac recycles with Canyon Computer SuppliesRemanufacturing toners keeps more than 42,000 tons of plastic, metal and toner out of the waste stream. For every cartridge that is remanufactured, a “core,” or spent cartridge is reused. Each core is made of approximately two and a half pounds of plastic, and without remanufacturing, that core would end up going into the waste stream.  The plastic used in a typical cartridge is industrial-grade and does not begin to degrade for at least 10 centuries, or 1,000 years.

The vendor supplies from Canyon Computer Supplies are environmentally friendly too. They conserve nature's resources by reusing non-wearing plastic shells and metal components from spent OEM cartridges. Canyon Computer Supplies and their vendors are proud to manufacture more than 80,000 environmentally conscious toner cartridges every month in addition to providing recycling services for OnTrac and other companies.

Using Remanufactured Toner Cartridges benefits all of us:

• Substantial fossil fuel and energy savings (generally, 95% of the energy used to make OEM cartridges)
• Reduction in pollution associated with extraction of virgin resources
• Each remanufactured cartridge lifecycle saves as much as one pint of oil
• Reduction in pollution associated with manufacturing new, OEM products
• Reduction in landfill-destined waste
