Albertsons Grocery Chain Diverts 90% of Waste in Las Vegas

Albertsons LLC grocery chain said that 30 Nevada stores in the greater Las Vegas area, Henderson and Boulder City have diverted more than 90 percent of store waste from landfills.

The Boise, Idaho-based Supervalu subsidiary achieved that through recycling, organic composting and food donations. The stores combined to keep more than 21 million pounds of waste out of local landfills and donate 3.5 million meals to local food bank and hunger relief efforts in the past year.
