Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems Finds Success with Composting Program

The composting program has helped Bendix divert more than 200 pounds of compostable waste each week, inching closer to its goal of becoming zero waste by 2020.

Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC launched an onsite composting program at its Elyria, Ohio-based headquarters in May 2016 and has since diverted more than 200 pounds of compostable waste each week, inching closer to its goal of becoming zero waste by 2020.

This week, as part of its Earth Day celebration, Bendix will launch the next phase of its composting program by installing custom countertops over trash receptacles in its dining area–one for composting, recycling and landfill.
