GreenShield℠ Gets Validated
August 4, 2011
JN Phillips Auto Glass’s windshield recycling program, GreenShield, has been confirmed as a “Validated Auto Glass Reclamation Program” by Underwriters Laboratories Environment (ULE), according to a release from the company.
According to the company, ULE conducted an audit of the GreenShield℠ process, which included a review of the standard operating procedure documentation, on-site inspections, interviews with employees, and a review of all shipping and transfer documentation.
The review was conducted at JN Phillips’ reclamation facility in Westborough, Mass., according to information from ULE. The facility is a storage and loading center “run by an independent recycling partner of JN Phillips,” where broken windshields from customers are brought to be aggregated and readied for shipment to a recycling facility, according to ULE.
The ULE validation is valid through April 25, 2012.
In the future, ULE will conduct annual reviews to renew its confirmation that the GreenShield℠ program continues to be in compliance with all required operating procedures.
“We are very proud to have worked with UL Environment, a leader in their field, to create a set of high standards for the auto glass recycling industry,” says JN Phillips CEO Robert Rosenfield. “We take windshield recycling very seriously and we believe that subscribing to the highest standards possible is the right thing for us and for the industry.”
To date, company officials say the GreenShield program has helped divert more than 2,000,000 pounds of glass and plastic from landfills.
