SC Johnson Employees Celebrate Earth Day with Electronics Recycling Program

SC Johnson, a global provider of household cleaning, air care, and home storage products, has held its eighth annual employee Recycling Program to celebrate Earth Day.

The event is an endeavor to help the company’s employees, retirees and employee families to dispose off unnecessary materials.

SC Johnson’s employees belonging to its business process & technology and product supply environmental operations groups organized the recycling program event. The event targeted materials that were difficult to get rid of, including used electronic products.

The event has continued to be a success all these years. The participants contributed over 25,000 lb of electronics including personal computers, monitors, scanners, printers and other equipment for the current event and these were recycled in a safe manner. Items containing mercury, such as thermometers and small electronic items, and materials that are difficult to recycle, including mobile phones and eye glasses were also recycled.

The Senior Vice President for Global Corporate Affairs, Communication & Sustainability at SC Johnson, Kelly M. Semrau, stated that all personnel who were part of the company demonstrated their commitment towards a better environment through their participation in the successful annual Recycling Program.

The company is committed to sustainability and numerous programs demonstrate this commitment. It utilizes renewable energy for around 40% of its total global electricity consumption. SC Johnson has power producing facilities in Michigan, Wisconsin, the Netherlands and in Indonesia. In these facilities it utilizes renewable energy from waste palm shells and wind turbines, and cogeneration turbines.
