News from Peckham
Peckham Industries has always striven to be an environmentally friendly business and have been doing our part to minimize our carbon footprint on the environment. In the past year we have taken the initiative to switch some of our blacktop plants over to natural gas in an effort to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions. Our Athens terminal and Catskill blacktop plants were the first to undergo the change and this upcoming season our Pleasant Valley location and Bronx Asphalt Terminal will be converted as well. We are constantly seeking new ways to be as friendly as we can to our environment and this is a giant step forward.
