Managing Our Waste Byproducts

We are constantly striving to send less waste to landfills. Thanks to our continuous improvement initiatives and engineering innovations, we are turning more raw materials into saleable products. We are also finding innovative uses for our manufacturing byproducts that have historically been viewed as “waste,” and our culture of sharing and replicating best practices has enabled us to accelerate our progress in diverting these materials from landfills. We can now envision a future with virtually zero waste going to landfills.
