Environmental Stewardship

Environmental stewardship is at the heart of what we do at Taylor-Cain Corporation. When we first entered the drum business, we helped transition major chemical companies away from single use plastics and into the returnable, reusable containers that we are known for today. Our products are built for many years of use, which means less plastic in the landfill each year. 

The industry-leading extraction capabilities of our package dramatically cuts down on the amount of chemical rinsate when it comes time to rinse and reuse Taylor-Cain drums. When our drums finally reach the end of their useful life, they are fully recyclable.

Our American and Canadian-based production means that Taylor-Cain products typically only make a short drive from factory to field, which significantly reduces the carbon footprint of our products.

Our Responsibility

We believe it is our responsibility to not only create a sustainable product, but to take actionable steps to help others do the same – which is why we are an active member of the ACRC (Ag Container Recycling Council). Through this platform, we are able to collaborate with other like-minded companies to make it easier and more accessible for the end user to recycle our products.

Looking toward the future, Taylor-Cain is committed to staying at the forefront of sustainability. We pride ourselves on being disruptors of the conventional – just because something has been done one way for a long time, doesn’t mean it’s always best to keep doing things that way. We are constantly seeking out new ways to make our products more environmentally friendly by improving production methods, investigating more sustainable resins, and offering alternatives to fluorination. Quality and sustainability shouldn’t be mutually exclusive, which is why we’re proud to offer a package that leads the pack in both arenas.
