Charter Steel has environmental teams in the the Melt Shops, Rolling Mills, and Processing Plants. Each group meets monthly to address, improve and create awareness of environmental issues unique to their area. The groups consist of between 7-15 people all with various responsibilities: operators, maintenance, shift managers, engineers, and a member of the environmental department.
For example, a common goal is to reduce trash and increase single sort recycling. Teams have accomplished this through creating improved labels, improved location of bins or hoppers, segregation, and education.
