  • Back to School: Be Safe on the Roads

    8/29/2012 4:23 PM

    It’s September and school is back in session. We all need to do our part to ensure the safety of our children, whether you’re parents of school age children or not. Neighborhood streets are filled each morning and afternoon with kids walking to and from the bus stop or school. Teaching children proper safety precautions and staying alert while you’re behind the wheel can very well save a life.

  • Back to School: Green Your School Supply List

    8/3/2012 1:18 PM

    It seems like we were just celebrating the end of the school year. But here we are, facing the first day of school right around the corner. And with that comes what many parents dread: the school supply list. When trying to live a greener lifestyle, you can certainly apply the same principles to school supplies: “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” Often, teachers are very specific when it comes to the supplies they require your child to have, so it may be tough to Reduce. But you can buy more sparingly – you don’t really need five packs of loose-leaf paper right away. Purchase one or two packs then replenish as needed. Same for other supplies like pencils.

  • Thompson Creek Recycles

    4/28/2011 12:00 AM

      Any manufacturing facility is going to have scraps left after the product is manufactured, and Thompson Creek Window Company is no exception.  But what is done with that waste can make a difference to our environment.  From the start of the manufacturing process, Thompson Creek works to minimize scrap.  Our manufacturing process utilizes computer-aided raw material optimization programs, designed to maximize raw material yield and minimize scrap. When building our vinyl replacement windows, our yield rate averages 90% and the 10% scrap we generate is recycled. We recycle also glass, vinyl and aluminum. In 2010 alone, Thompson Creek recycled 101,925 pounds of vinyl from our manufacturing facility in Landover, MD.  97% of this vinyl was able to be reused for other products such as vinyl fences and vinyl gutters. As a local manufacturer, we want to protect our area from having excess materials being dumped in landfills, polluting Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC.
