Marvin Windows and Doors Receives “Greener North Dakota Award” for Sustainable Initiatives

Marvin Windows News - Wed, 01/20/2016 - 15:48

WARROAD, Minn. – Marvin Windows and Doors has long been committed to sustainable initiatives – and now, Marvin and its employees have been recognized with the 2015 “Greener North Dakota Award” from the North Dakota Solid Waste and Recycling Association (NDSWRA) for their commitment to North Dakota’s environment.

The Greener North Dakota Award recognizes businesses, organizations, communities and individuals for their positive environmental efforts through solid waste management (reduction/recycling), renewable energy processes/programs, creating jobs by using recyclable products to make end products, pollution reduction and more.

Marvin Windows and Doors has operated a facility in Grafton, North Dakota, since 1997, and today, the 500,000-square-foot plant employs roughly 450 people. The Greener North Dakota award was accepted by Marvin employees Shane Shereck, an EHS Specialist, and Jeff Hermanson, Coatings Engineer. Marvin announced the award to its Grafton employees during an all-employee meeting on Jan. 19.

Marvin’s Grafton facility currently recycles more than 50 different waste streams, including wood, metal, office paper, vinyl, safety glasses and cardboard. Additionally, the facility holds an annual recycling drive where employees are invited to bring in used TVs, computers and other electronic devices. The last drive held at the facility helped recycle 851 pounds of electronic devices.

Changes and upgrades to the facility’s coating operations – including the implementation of new digital regulation, auto spray guns, and needles and nozzles – were also among the factors that helped Marvin’s Grafton facility earn the Greener North Dakota Award.

Additionally, Marvin Windows and Doors of Grafton has drastically reduced its paint waste and has seen improved performance in pieces coated per gallon, which is expected to have a positive impact on future emissions reports.

“The recycling improvements that have been made over the past 18 years are a credit to all of our employees,” said Shereck, who has worked at Marvin for nearly two decades. “From day one, we stress that we want to reduce what goes into a landfill and reuse, reduce and recycle wherever we can. It is good for the environment, and it is just the right thing to do.”
