Marketing Manager, Hanley Wood FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dallas, Texas – April 7, 2009 — Outstanding results were again achieved from the recycling program implemented at this year’s World of Concrete. Hanley Wood, LLC and Freeman indicate that 93% of the post-show waste collected at World of Concrete was diverted from local landfills and recycled; an increase of 12% over the 2008 event. In addition to the typical materials used at shows, WOC also contends with concrete walls and slabs used for demonstrations. All of these items were recycled at the close of the show.
“World of Concrete is pleased to continue its effort to recycle post-show waste and concrete. Our exhibitors and attendees have been pleased with our results and support this important environmental initiative that is crucial to the tradeshow industry,” said World of Concrete Show Director Tom Cindric.
“We have partnered with Hanley Wood to help reduce waste on a comprehensive level at World of Concrete for the past two years. Through a local recycling company, we have been able to achieve very impressive results in 2008 and in 2009,” said Martin Moggre, Senior Vice President Sales, Exposition Services, for Freeman. “It is important to Freeman that we continue to find ways for our clients to reduce, reuse and recycle in a variety of ways at their events, and the results in reducing post-show waste has been a significant part of that goal.”
“By working with Evergreen Recycling and Freeman in the future we hope to get closer to 100%,” said Cindric.
