At State Farm®, we're in the business of planning for the future. And protecting our shared environment is no exception — we've been doing it for nearly 30 years.
In 1988, we started a proactive approach to dealing with outdated computer equipment. We developed an environmentally safe plan to dispose of outdated terminals and computer screens.
In 2009, our institution-wide recycling policies kept 3.9 million pounds of computers and electronic equipment out of landfills.
And our plans don't stop with computers. We recycle batteries, aluminum, glass, plastic, cardboard, paper, metal, fluorescent tubes, printer and toner cartridges, and carpet at most of our major facilities. We also reuse pallets, packing materials, and corrugated boxes. And with our No Carpet in Landfill policy, we've diverted 1 million square yards of carpet from landfills.
Our recycling efforts are only one way we're striving to be not only a good neighbor, but a green neighbor.
State Farm® is committed to a future where environmental values are key to the way we do business. We will continue to find solutions to reduce our company impacts and help build safer and greener communities.
At State Farm, A good neighbor is a green neighbor.™
