Scotts Aims for 50% Reduction in Landfill Waste Weight by 2018

Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. plans to reduce its waste by weight sent to landfills by 50 percent and include 30-percent recycled and renewable content in packaging by 2018, according to its latest sustainability report.

The Marysville, Ohio-based lawn and garden product retailer said in a news release that it has achieved zero waste to landfill status at four of its worldwide facilities. Also, approximately 5 billion pounds of beneficially reused material, such as rice hulls, paper mill waste, agave compost, yard waste and coconut coir, were used in ScottsMiracle-Gro products in 2011.
