Committed to reuse, not refuse.
A good steward pays attention to the details — and when it comes to recycling, Avista is truly focused.
We’ve had an active, award-winning, and continually expanding recycling program since the mid-1980s.
The program employs 15 part- and full-time developmentally disabled workers who help us recycle all our white and colored paper (including envelopes), corrugated cardboard, plastic and glass bottles, magazines and newspapers, wood reels and pallets, shredded paper, phone books and batteries.
Avista doesn’t stop there, though. The company is also committed to recycling non-hazardous electrical equipment. So we send the equipment to recyclers where the aluminum, copper, lead, and other ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be reclaimed and recycled.
Not only is it good for the environment, but in the last five years our recycling efforts have saved Avista $65,000-70,000 a year in refuse disposal costs.
