Fitchburg, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/02/2013 --Alpha Rho Inc. is proud to announce its expanding green energy policy. Partnering with E.L Harvey & Sons, Inc., a local waste and recyclable materials company, Alpha Rho adds corrugated cardboard recycling in its effort to support the reduction of the flow of waste material. This is now added to its ongoing recycling of plastic scrap, and machine oil that is generated at their manufacturing plant. This year Alpha Rho Inc. has raised the bar again by setting a new standard in being the environmentally conscious plastic box manufacturer.

David Tall, President of Alpha Rho Inc. states that, “Our emphasis is on increasing recycling waste wherever possible, which is essential in making the environment safer and greener”. Corrugated containers are generally one of the highest percentage commodities in a company’s overall waste stream and one of the easiest to recover for recycling. In addition to recycling corrugated cardboard and used machine oil, Alpha Rho Inc. also regrinds their plastic scrap into non-processed material and re-molds it, which allows plastic parts and scraps to be re-utilized.

Alpha Rho manufactures a wide assortment of plastic boxes and novelty plastic items. The rigid plastic boxes are suitable for many applications including beads, gifts, jewelry, candies, hardware items, industrial applications, food products and much more.
