P&G Plant Achieves Zero To Landfill

By December 23, 2010

Follow me on:

Many companies have the goal to achieve zero waste-to-landfill status, however not many succeed. Proctor and Gamble (P&G) is the latest firm to have achieved this at its Auburn plant in Maine. The plant recycles or reuses more than 60 percent of its waste, while the rest is converted to electricity through incineration. Excess electrical capacity is sold to the local power company.

P&G says it has diverted tens of thousands of tons of waste from landfills while achieving tens of millions of dollars in cost recovery in the past year. Nine other plants in the P&G family has achieved zero waste-to-landfill status including the fabric and home care site in Belgium, beauty and grooming site in the United Kingdom, and feminine care sites in Hungary and Italy.
