Since the inception of our company as a brick paver manufacturer more than 150 years ago, Ironrock has had a commitment of stewardship toward the land and its resources. We pride ourselves on our effort to recycle, reduce waste, and incorporate resource-saving practices into everyday work practices.
To further reduce waste material, Ironrock has a robust recycling program. We recycle a variety of materials from our Canton, OH manufacturing facility–and even encourage employees to bring in their recyclable products from home.
Ironrock also has a Refractory Recycling Program. Refractories are the plates, posts and blocks that move tile and brick through the Ironrock kilns. Although they can withstand high temperatures, these parts are easy to break. Ironrock now has a program in place to return broken refractories to our supplier to use in making new refractories. Ironrock is pleased to add refractory recycling to the list of materials we recycle and reuse.
