Polywood® shutters are not only a fully recyclable shutter, but they also contain up to 20% recycled Polywood material. We’re the only shutter company in Cincinnati or even America that does that.
Sunburst supports green design, products, and buildings. We aim for reusing our materials whenever we can. We recycle water used to cool parts when they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging materials. We reuse shutter fragments – or regrind them and turn them into new shutters. Every year we recycle hundreds of tons of materials.
When we package our window treatments to be transported to your residence for installation, we put reusable corner pieces on the edges of louvers and use the least amount of cardboard to package the shutters.
The patented paint finishes we apply to your plantation shutters are environmentally safe – and are even less than the standard volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing method, our paints don’t emit fumes. When we claim our paints aren’t toxic, we mean it.
Polywood Shutters do not emit dangerous gasses – so you and your household can breathe easier and enjoy your window treatments.
The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Cincinnati, OH
If you ever want to switch your window treatment styles, we provide a shutter recycling program in Cincinnati to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. What you have to do is simply take down the shutters on your own, and contact our store manager at 513-216-9740 to set up a pick-up. We will come get your shutters and reuse some of their materials in future Polywood shutters. This applies to Polywood shutters only—we don’t offer recycling for other shutter brands.
This way, you can recycle Polywood shutters at no cost to you. And, together, we’re assisting in keeping the environment green in Cincinnati.
