- SGTM secures Hurricane Laura recovery work contract for ArborPro of Mississippi Inc.
- Initial relief efforts will divert trees from landfills to temporary holding sites
- SGTM transforms natural storm waste into organic environmentally beneficial products
As “stewards of the environment”, Sustainable Green Team (OTC: SGTM) takes its role in environmental remediation seriously by providing beneficial solutions for tree and storm waste disposal. In the wake of Hurricane Laura, SGTM rose to the occasion by securing a contract for ArborPro of Mississippi Inc. (APM), one of its strategic partners. The recovery work planned will kickstart SGTM’s process, diverting many destroyed trees from landfills to the company’s processing facilities that will transform them into environmentally beneficial organic products.
Considered to be the strongest hurricane to hit Louisiana since 1856, Laura ravaged the state with winds clocking in at over 150 miles per hour as it destroyed vegetation and shredded homes while taking at least 17 lives in the process (https://ibn.fm/LXAc5). Hurricanes of this magnitude inflict massive damage on trees by breaking branches or uprooting them completely, creating a burden for municipalities that often dispose of them in landfills.
SGTM provides synergistic solutions that clear devastated areas of natural waste while creating products that benefit the environment. Through its subsidiary National Storm Recovery, the company collects the trees and transforms them into organic products such as garden mulch and organic playground surfacing material certified by IPEMA, The International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association.
“Our teams are committed to the cleanup process and helping the wonderful people of Louisiana get back on their feet again,” said SGTM CEO and Director Tony Raynor (https://ibn.fm/xsOVe). “Our database of subcontractors is growing daily as the clean-up efforts begin.”
Teams from both SGTM and APM will initially collaborate with subcontractors to remove trees blocking key infrastructure points such as right-of-ways. As part of the initial remediation efforts, the trees will then be transported to temporary debris management sites for storage prior to reaching their final destination at SGTM’s processing facilities.
“I’m proud to be a part of this disaster recovery clean up and with our relationship with National Storm Recovery,” said APM CEO Aaron Miller. “Our combined resources and decades of experience will speed the recovery process.”
SGTM’s solutions are founded in sustainability, based on vertically integrated operations that transform what would be landfill waste into organic, attractive, next-generation playground surface material and mulch products that are packaged and sold to landscapers, installers and garden centers. Through a combination of organic growth, strategic acquisitions and service diversification, the company is positioned for rapid growth as nationwide demand for environmentally sustainable solutions for natural waste continues to increase.
