We Recycle

PITT OHIO engages in waste product and paper recycling at all of its facilities. Most recently, we began a single sort recycling program at our corporate office and Pittsburgh terminal. Some of PITT OHIO's terminals participate in Pallet Recycling Programs, which reduces costs for waste removal by recycling pallets and junk wood.

PITT OHIO Clean Up

Employees from the company's 7 Pennsylvania terminals have participated in the "Great PA Cleanup" since 2005.  PITT OHIO expanded its green efforts in 2009 to include employees from all of its 21 terminals in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest regions.  Employees are encouraged to bring their family and friends and participate in community improvement activities such as picking up litter, landscaping, gardening, and other Earth Day beautification projects during the month of April. 

The company takes great pride in giving back to the community, which is a part of PITT OHIO's overall mission. Year after year we are awed at the dedication and enthusiasm our employees give to preserving our planets beauty and PITT OHIO is committed to supporting these efforts.
