Procter & Gamble Reaches 45 Facilities with Zero Waste to Landfills

Procter & Gamble (P&G) said it now has 45 of its facilities that have achieved zero manufacturing waste sent to landfills.

The Cincinnati-based consumer products manufacturer said in a news release the achievement is a major step toward the company’s goal of sending no manufacturing and consumer waste to landfills. During the past five years the company’s effort to find worth in waste has created more than $1 billion in value for P&G.

The company said that 99 percent of all materials entering P&G plants leave as a finished product or are recycled, reused or converted into energy. That is achieved through quality assurance, packaging reduction, compaction and recycling efforts.
