Our employees continually take initiative to make us more green.
One of our employer teams, the U.K. Go Green Team, successfully reduced C02 emissions through a polystyrene recycling program.
Previously, polystyrene waste was collected twice per week, with each collection requiring approximately 40 miles round trip. With new polystyrene recycling equipment at Labcorp’s Harrogate site the polystyrene waste is now compressed into small briquettes that weigh about four kilograms each. The briquettes are collected every four to six months and are recycled to be used in the construction industry.
