Not only are Polywood® shutters a fully recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood material. No other shutter company in Minneapolis – or even in America – does that.
Sunburst supports green products, designs, and buildings. We reuse our materials whenever possible. We recycle water used to cool items when they’re coming out of ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and turn them into new shutters. Every year we recycle hundreds of tons of materials.
When we package our window treatments to be transported to your residence for installation, we put reusable corner pieces on the sides of the louvers and use as little cardboard as possible to box up the shutters.
Our plantation shutters are coated with patented paints that are environmentally safe – and are even less than the normal volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing method, none of our paints give off fumes. When we say our paints aren’t toxic, we mean it.
Polywood Shutters do not emit dangerous gasses – so you and your household can breathe easily and savor your window treatments.

All you have to do is take down the shutters yourself, and call our store manager at 952-856-8130 to schedule a pick-up. We will come get your shutters and reuse them in one form or another in future Polywood shutters. This is true for Polywood shutters only—we don’t offer recycling for other shutter brands.
