Sunbelt Transformer

Year Submitted: 2003

Process: Transformer manufacturing

Industry: Electronics Manufacturing

Wastes Reduced: Solid Waste

Substance: Scrap Metal

Location: Temple TX

No. of employees: 75

Contact: Christi Hicks

Phone: (254) 771-3777 ext.237


Rather than recycling scrap metals as mixed material, Sunbelt Transformer began segregating waste metals.

P2 Application:

The recycler gave Sunbelt Transformer approximately $0.01 for every pound of mixed metal material. By segregating the material, Sunbelt Transformer received $0.18 - $0.91 per pound of scrap metal. In fact, the additional segregation effort increased total revenue from metal recycling by more than $100,000 in 1995.

Environmental Benefits:

In addition to the 335,000 pounds of scrap metal recycled per year, Sunbelt Transformer recycles over 800,000 pounds of other materials. This translates into 1,135,000 pounds of materials kept from our landfills per year.

Details of Reductions

Additional Information :

The company earned a combined savings of $1,144,000 per year in revenue earned and disposal costs by segregating various scrap metal.
