Stripes® Convenience Stores Pave the Way for the Future in Refugio, Texas
New Truck Parking Area Developed with Recycled Materials
• Truck parking lot made from recycled materials from top to bottom
• Frontline solution to erosion control and storm water management
• Environmentally sustainable
(Corpus Christi, TX) July 9, 2014 - Stripes® is paving the way for the future of truck stops with its first installation of a new environmentally safe truck parking area in Refugio, Texas. Recently, Stripes replaced its over-the-road truck parking lot at a Stripes located in South Texas with a new technology called TRUEGRID®, a product made from post-consumer recycled polyolefin, which is environmentally safe and durable.
The new parking lot is a frontline solution to erosion control and storm water management. The Stripes team partnered with members of TRUEGRID and Refugio city officials to launch the new parking area for the betterment of the community, and to improve the experiences of Stripes customers.
“We are proud to offer a sustainable solution to the city of Refugio and the members of our community. The new truck parking area is environmentally safe and controls erosion,” stated Richard Sebastian, Senior Vice President of Facilities for Susser Holdings Corporation, the parent company of Stripes LLC.
TRUEGRID is made of 100% recycled plastic, and can also be recycled itself. Reducing the amount of new plastic and reusing existing plastic, helps the sustainability of the environment. The parking lot gravel is made from post-recycled material and is able to support heavy vehicles. The new parking area is now open for Stripes customers to use.
“It was wonderful working with Stripes on this new environmentally friendly parking lot project from start to finish. This is great for the Refugio community, and the parking lot is designed for longevity and sustainability,” stated Mayor Joey Heard of Refugio, Texas.
