Making a Difference – An example of our efforts
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, each person generates 2.92 lbs of landfill waste each day. Each year, instead of adding more to landfills across North America, ROCK Networks has made an effort to recover and recycle unusable two-way radios when they are traded into our business. In 2016, we were 500 pounds more than the national average for recycling, totalling 2,520.3 pounds recovered (that’s the equivalent of not adding waste to a landfill for 863 days or 123 weeks!
This is a program our team at ROCK Networks is proud to take part in – making a difference for the environment one radio at a time.
