Reasons to destroy products for businesses in Washington
Businesses and government agencies oftentimes need to dispose of faulty, counterfeit, expired, recalled, or otherwise unusable products that do not meet their standards. At times, this is vitally important to protect consumers from defective products. Other times, companies need to protect their brand from shoddy product distribution. Only total product destruction assures that returned, discontinued, or unwanted products will not return to the marketplace.
Types of products for destruction for Washington businesses
Some of the types of products we regularly demanufacture or destroy on behalf of business include the following:
Product recalls: Protecting your brand from the negative exposure caused by recalled products is vital. Recalling and destroying recalled or otherwise inferior products can be timely and more importantly, costly to your reputation and bottom line. In addition to our recall destruction services, we provide complete documentation of your product destruction, including certification of destruction and proof that all regulations and approved destruction methods have been used.
Counterfeit Products: Counterfeit goods can damage a company’s reputation and threaten their livelihood. Cheap knock-offs can also hurt not only your business, but also affect the economy by causing unfair and illegal competition displacement. If your business is obligated to destroy such products, we provide affordable and proper destruction, with documentation for compliance.
Defective Products: Allowing a defective product to remain on the market after a recall not only will ruin your brand and reputation, but could cause safety concerns and possible litigation. It is your legal responsibility as a manufacturer to ensure that defective products are removed from the market and destroyed completely. We can completely eliminate this risk by conducting a proper destruction, mitigating these potential dangers.
Distribution Center Overstock: Distribution centers and warehousing facilities are often left holding the bag when a product reaches its end of life, a company goes out of business, or more often the case, a product is overstocked and excess inventory needs to be discarded. 1 Green Planet provides product destruction specifically to assist distribution centers to regain valuable shelf space by eliminating old, overstock and obsolete products so both the retailer and warehouse or distribution center can rest assured products that are not supposed to reach the marketplace won’t.
About Washington State
Washington, officially the State of Washington, is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the Western United States. Named for George Washington—the first U.S. president—the state was formed from the western part of the Washington Territory, which was ceded by the British Empire in 1846, in accordance with the Oregon Treaty in the settlement of the Oregon boundary dispute.
The state—which is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, Oregon to the south, Idaho to the east, and the Canadian province of British Columbia to the north—was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889. Olympia is the state capital; the state’s largest city is Seattle. Washington is often referred to as Washington state.
Washington is the 18th-largest state, with an area of 71,362 square miles (184,830 km2), and the 13th-most populous state, with more than 7.7 million people. The majority of Washington’s residents live in the Seattle metropolitan area, the center of transportation, business, and industry on Puget Sound, an inlet of the Pacific Ocean consisting of numerous islands, deep fjords, and bays carved out by glaciers. The remainder of the state consists of deep temperate rainforests in the west; mountain ranges in the west, central, northeast, and far southeast; and a semi-arid basin region in the east, central, and south, given over to intensive agriculture. Washington is the second most populous state on the West Coast and in the Western United States, after California. Mount Rainier, an active stratovolcano, is the state’s highest elevation at 14,411 feet (4,392 meters), and is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous U.S.
Washington is a leading lumber producer; its rugged surface is rich in stands of Douglas fir, hemlock, ponderosa pine, white pine, spruce, larch, and cedar. The state is the largest producer of apples, hops, pears, blueberries, spearmint oil, and sweet cherries in the U.S., and ranks high in the production of apricots, asparagus, dry edible peas, grapes, lentils, peppermint oil, and potatoes. Livestock, livestock products, and commercial fishing—particularly of salmon, halibut, and bottomfish—are also significant contributors to the state’s economy. Washington ranks second only to California in wine production.
