Not only are Polywood® shutters a fully recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood content. No other shutter company in Gainesville – or even in America – does that.
Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing our materials whenever possible. We recycle water that cools down items when they’re finished in the ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. Each year we recycle hundreds of tons of materials.
When we package our window treatments to be transported to your residence for installation, we insert reusable corner pieces on the louvers’ edges and use as little cardboard as possible to package the shutters.
Our plantation shutters are coated with patented paint finishes that are environmentally safe – and are even below the normal volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. In our manufacturing method, none of our paints emit fumes. We mean it when we say our paints are safe.
Polywood Shutters don’t emit harmful gasses – so you and your family can breathe easily and enjoy your window treatments.
The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Gainesville, FL
If you ever decide to change your window treatment styles, we provide a shutter recycling program in Gainesville to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. All you have to do is remove the shutters yourself, and call our store manager at 813-602-5966 to arrange a pick-up. We will pick up your shutters and reuse some part of them in future Polywood shutters. This is true for Polywood shutters only—we don’t offer recycling for other shutter brands.
This way, it’s easy to recycle Polywood shutters. And, together, we’re aiding in keeping the environment green in Gainesville.
