ACH: Getting Greener All the Time

April 22, 2008

In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />AllianceCommunityHospital is recycling newspapers all day today.  <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Large recycle receptacles have been placed outside of the Educational Services department, in which Colleagues are being encouraged to recycle previously-read newspapers.  Today's newspaper recycling effort goes hand-in-hand with ACH's routine copy paper recycling endeavors. 

Chandler Mazeall II, Director of Materials Management, said that ACH recycles nearly 6,000 pounds –-or almost three tons-- of paper each month. 

ACH Director of Campus Planning Bob Kroupa said that other ways in which ACH conserves reuses and recycles include:

~Maximizing open space and vegetation (examples include the ACH rooftop and outdoor gardens)

~An exterior lighting system that automatically adjusts for daylight

~Use of fluorescent lights (the most energy efficient type) in roughly 95% of the building

~A ban of ozone-depleting CFC refrigerants

~Use of double-pane windows (which keep extreme temperatures outside from impacting the climate indoors)

Lastly, in testament to ACH's commitment to the environment and in honor of Arbor Day on April 25th, a tree planting ceremony has been planned for Friday at Noon in the discharge circle.  Planting a tree is one small way ACH is giving back – and showing our compassion for our earth! 

ACH also reminds its staff and the community that other ways individuals can choose to “Go green!†include online bill payment (which reduces paper waste), walking or bicycling instead of driving when possible (which conserves gas and reduces pollution) and recycling cans and bottles (which reduces landfill waste).
