Recycling
Q: Does Ligne Roset recycle waste and use recyclable materials?

Waste management is clearly an integral part of our approach to sustainable development. The personnel employed in the Ligne Roset factories are extremely conscious of this issue.

By the numbers, the volume of waste products diminishes year by year

Cabinet Production Facilities:

  • In 2001, the company's cabinet factories sent 500 tons of waste for recycling at a cost of $38,000
  • In 2002, this figure was reduced to 400 tons at a cost of $33,000
  • In 2006, this figure was further reduced to 300 tons at a cost of $22,000

Upholstery Production Facilities:

  • In the 2005-2006 fiscal year, the budget for "waste products - removal and recycling" in Ligne Roset's upholstery department had reached $165,000
  • In the 2006-2007 fiscal year, this figure decreased by 35 percent to $107,000
