Polywood® shutters are not only a completely recyclable shutter, but they are also comprised of up to 20% recycled Polywood material. No other shutter company in Chicago – or even in America – does that.
Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We aim for reusing any and all materials whenever possible. We recycle water used to cool parts when they come out of ovens. We reuse packaging materials. We reuse shutter pieces – or regrind them and recycle them into new shutters. Every year we recycle hundreds of tons of materials.
When we package our window treatments for transportation to your house for installation, we put reusable corner pieces on the sides of the louvers and use minimal cardboard to package the shutters.
Our plantation shutters are coated with patented paint finishes that are environmentally safe – and are even below the standard volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing process, none of our paints emit fumes. We mean it when we declare our paints aren’t toxic.
Polywood Shutters do not give off dangerous gasses – so you and your household can relax and savor your window treatments.
The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Chicago, IL
If you ever desire to switch your window treatment styles, we offer a shutter recycling program in Chicago to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. What you have to do is simply remove the shutters on your own, and call our store manager at 847-250-6544 to schedule a pick-up. We will come get your shutters and reuse some part of them in future Polywood shutters. This applies to Polywood shutters only—we don’t offer recycling for other shutter brands.
With this program, there’s no cost to you for recycling Polywood shutters. And, together, we’re assisting in keeping the environment green in Chicago.
