With stores in Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa, we pride ourselves in helping the Midwest reduce its carbon footprint. Our Morton, Illinois store is just one of our many stores going green. The city of Morton has put forth efforts to cut down on its carbon footprint. The Morton Community Bikeway is the central bike trail system for the community. The paved bike trail serves as not only a recreational tool, but also as an alternative for commuters. The popular trail passes key businesses, such as Neovia Logistics and Nestle’s Libby’s Pumpkin Processing plant. It even connects to other bike trails in the Morton area.
Morton, and the rest of Illinois, are taking more steps toward a sustainable future. The Illinois Department of Transportation recycles and remakes old road signs using recycled water. The signs go through a hydro-stripping process where the water is filtered and reused. This saves 190,000 gallons of water per year. By reusing the signs, IDOT is also saving 427,500 pounds of aluminum each year.
Recycling and Reusing Rubber
Blain’s Farm & Fleet of Morton, Illinois also strives to go green. When you come to the Morton automotive service center for new tires, you may wonder what happens to your old, worn-out tires. Old tires are loaded up on a semi and taken to Liberty Tire Recycling. They process the old tires to be reused for a greener future. The tires are made into non-toxic, clean materials used for a variety of products and services.
The recycled tires are made into crumb rubber, which is used for safe playground surfaces and athletic turf. It’s even put back into the automotive industry, used for brake lining, sealants and new passenger tires. Liberty Tire takes a step further by using the recycled tires for filter material for waste water treatment. Your old tires are not only staying out of landfills, but helping our water systems, too.
