Venice, FL, June 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Cramer Toyota of Venice recently goes green in a big way. A recent analysis of the recycling efforts being put forth at Cramer Toyota of Venice revealed that there was much more that could be done. Cramer Toyota of Venice assigned a team of employees to figure out how to best accomplish the task. Led by Josh Jorge the Service Manager at Cramer Toyota of Venice, the team eventually involved employees from each department. “Once Josh asked for help, I realized that our business office could do more. We generate lots of paper and most of it could be recycled”, says Jodi McKinney the Controller at Cramer Toyota of Venice. McKinney quickly contacted the company that Cramer Toyota of Venice uses to shred their documents and found that they were already recycling the shredded documents. According to McKinney, “because of the sensitive nature of the information we are dealing with, all of our waste paper is shredded. We already had the shredder boxes all around the dealership, but never thought to ask if the shredded material was being recycled.” Cramer Toyota of Venice purchased special recycle bins made exclusively for cans and bottles and put them in key areas. General Manger Richard Bond explains, “We were always recycling things like batteries, oil, scrap metal and tires. We were also using special trash containers for cans and bottles. The real eye opener was when we went through the dumpster and realized the volume of cans and bottles not being recycled. The solution was simple. Josh Jorge and his team went on an education blitz with the employees and we made it easy for them to do it by providing multiple containers.” Cramer Toyota of Venice with over 100 employees has now decreased its foot print on the planet. If you want information on how they were able to accomplish so much so fast, call Josh Jorge at 941-484-9000.
