As a company, we were concerned at the large amount of these containers, many of which we know are ending up in landfills rather than recycling centers. So we decided to do something about it. Interlink Supply is testing a program at select locations to encourage their customers to recycle their empty containers. Participating Interlink Supply locations have arranged for recycling containers to be placed at each of the stores. We are offering a reward program for customers to increase the incentive to return the empty containers and recycle them. Carpet cleaners and restorers will be rewarded with in-store credits for each of their empty containers. Our desire is this added incentive, and the fact they drop by the store on a regular basis anyway, will encourage them to properly rinse out their containers, and place them into our recycling bins. This is our way of contributing to the proper disposal of the containers created by the sales of our products. With tons of plastic containers used by many industries quickly filling up the local landfills, we feel this program will serve as an example for other businesses that can help the environment by offering similar programs.
