Caring for the Environment
WINMAR® has fully embraced the use of the Esporta wash system which has reduced the need for hazardous chemicals in the process of cleaning damaged items from fires and floods. Previously the industry has used perchloroethylene to treat the items; the Esporta system utilizes an enzyme based detergent system which is eco-friendly and safe for humans. Not only has this greatly reduced the amount of contaminants introduced to our environment, we are also able to reduce the amount of contents typically sent to a landfill by 80%.
WINMAR® Guelph has ‘adopted’ Wellington Rd. #124 between Kossuth Rd. and Wellington Rd. 32 South. We have pledged to do a thorough clean-up of this stretch of road three times a year in accordance with The County of Wellington’s policy and procedures. This not only keeps this ‘gateway’ to Guelph looking its best but also lessens the impact of 40,000 cars travelling this stretch of road daily.
Since 2000 we have been utilizing 4 cylinder cars for our estimators and project managers. Compared with an 8 cylinder pickup truck/SUV (typical vehicle used by the industry) we have saved over 206,000 litres of fuel. Not only has this saved our company thousands of dollars, but has kept 377.57 kg of CO2 from polluting our air. On top of that we have, for the past two years enforced a ‘no idle’ policy for our fleet in order to further reduce our carbon footprint.
