Green Initiatives

TTI is dedicated to actively reducing our environmental impact internally and along the supply channel.


Recycling Initiatives

Cardboard Recycling Initiative (1991–Present)

TTI has been recycling cardboard for more than 20 years, keeping more than two hundred tons of cardboard from going to the landfill while also saving TTI money on waste collection costs.

Obsolete Inventory Recycling Initiative (2006 – Present)

The electronics material recycling program has thus far recycled over 576,737 lbs of material that would have otherwise gone into landfill. The same program has returned money to TTI's bottom line through the extraction of precious metals & resale on scrap metals markets.

Printer Cartridge, Battery, & Cell Phone Recycling Initiative (2009 – Present)

TTI facilities have combined to recycle and responsibly dispose of:

  • Inkjet and Laser Cartridges: 1000+/yr
  • Batteries:
    • AAA-D – various uses
    • 6 & 12 volt – OP carts and Wave
    • 24 & 36 volt – forklifts
  • Cell phones: Various corporate and employee

Water Conservation Initiatives

Installed Zurn Low Flow Valves in Urinals and Water Closets (2006 – Present)

This has allowed us to reduce our consumption by 108,072 gallons per year for a total savings of 945,360 gallons. (2006 thru 2011)

Replaced Traditional Sprinkler Heads with Israeli Drip-irrigation System (2012)

We are currently analyzing the results from phase one, but plan to expand this to additional areas in the near future.


Energy Savings Initiatives

Replaced Lighting Fixtures with New LED Fixtures

Previous fixtures consumed 456 watts each, but the new GE LED fixtures consume only 205 watts each. – 55% reduction.

Installed Motion Sensors in Warehouses

Motion sensors allow the lighting on the aisles on the first and second level to only burn when someone is actually picking parts. These lamps would normally operate from 6AM-9PM M-F for a total of 75 hours, but with the motion sensors now only are burned approximately 25% of the time.

Installed Air Curtains in Warehouses

The air curtains block 76% of the outside air from infiltrating air conditioned warehouses, minimizing temperature fluctuations.

Replaced Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

  • Replaced 64 metal halide parking lot fixtures (491 watts consumption each) with 64 GE Evolve EAMM LED light fixtures (205 watts consumption each) – 58% reduction.
  • Replaced 32 metal halide wall packs (491 watts consumption each) with 32 GE Evolve EWSW fixtures (101 watts consumption each) – 79% reduction.
