Preserving History; Preserving the Environment

The protection, conservation, and reduction in the use of natural resources are important goals for Borroughs Corporation. Because the impact on the environment is important, Borroughs Corporation has undergone many changes to continually improve the way business is done.

  • Powder coat paint system implemented using no volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).
  • Universal waste including, but not limited to batteries, fluorescent lights, and computer monitor recycling.
  • Packaging materials are recycled.
  • All Federal, State and Local environmental regulations are met.
  • City environmental compliance awards received twice within past five years.
  • Estimated potential annual energy savings from recycling of steel equates to over 64,000 gallons of gasoline or more than 1,000,000 kilowatts of electricity. This is enough electrical power to supply over 100 average size houses annually.
  • Implementing an effective environmental management system that meets ISO 14001:2004 standards.
  • Implementing SVE and AS monitoring systems to improve the aquifer.

All of these actions help reduce harmful effects on the environment and show our commitment placed to conservation of planet resources for generations to come.
