RC Willey believes it is important to be green.
At RC Willey, we do our best to be good neighbors. We know that we have a responsibility to care for the environment and are committed to doing our part to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Here are some of the ways we Go Green.
The Energy-Star Experts
By offering the largest selection of ENERGY STAR products around, we make it easier than ever to find energy-efficient appliances and electronics. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the EPA and DOE designed to help us all save money and conserve energy usage. Check out our selection of ENERGY STAR washers, dryers, refrigerators, and dishwashers.
Appliance Recycling Program
Do you ever wonder what happens to your old appliances after our delivery drivers haul them off? Instead of dumping your used appliances at the landfill, we take them to our distribution centers where we recycle what we can. Freon, copper, and other scrap metals are all stripped and reused whenever possible.
Mattress Recycling Program
We’ve partnered with Spring Back Utah, a social enterprise that works tirelessly to divert old mattresses from landfills. By manually deconstructing used mattresses, up to 95% is recycled. We’re proud to support this group as we work together to renew lives, restore the planet, and reshape communities. Find out more about their mission here!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
We’ve reduced our reliance on landfills by over 85% by reducing paper usage and recycling paper, plastic, Styrofoam, and cardboard. Only the material that we can’t recycle, ends up at the dump.
Natural Wildlife Federation Recipient Award
RC Willey has been recognized for receiving the Natural Wildlife Federation and Sustainable Furnishings Council Recipient Award. RC Willey’s long-term intention is to buy whenever possible from furniture manufacturers that adhere to independent standards for sustainable sourcing and use of recycled/reclaimed materials. We recognize the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as an important tool to promote responsible forest management and have a preference for sourcing FSC-certified wood furniture as it becomes available.
RC Willey is also committed to avoiding wood from unacceptable sources including:
- Illegally harvested or traded timber
- Timber harvested in violation of traditional or civil rights
- Timber harvested from areas in which high conservation values are threatened by poor forest management
- Timber harvested from areas being converted from forests to plantations or non-forest use
- Timber from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted
Energy-Efficient Light Bulbs
All of the fluorescent lights in our warehouses and corporate offices have been replaced with energy-efficient bulbs that use about 50% less energy.
Motion Sensor Lights
By installing motion-activated light bulbs in our warehouses, we’ve significantly cut down our daily energy usage across the company. After 10 minutes of inactivity the lights automatically switch off.
ChargePoint EV Charging Stations
Customers can charge their electric cars while they shop at select locations. Find ChargePoint EV Charging Ports at our Layton Store with more planned in the future.
