P&G’s Maine Manufacturing Plant Is Its 9th Zero Waste To Landfill Site

December 6, 2010: 12:53 AM EST

Procter & Gamble’s Auburn, Maine feminine care manufacturing plant becomes its first production facility in North America to use all of its waste, sending none to landfill: 60 percent is recycled and the rest is incinerated to generate electricity, some of which is used at the site. Surplus electricity is sold to the local power company. P&G’s Global Asset Recovery Purchases team, working with employees and suppliers, has created a solution that not only diverts thousands of tons of waste from landfill, but also saves the company millions of dollars in costs. Auburn becomes the company’s ninth plant to reach zero waste to landfill and is part of P&G’s long-term aim to achieve zero waste to landfill throughout the company, with a 2020 goal of 0.5 percent.
