Waste Not, Want Not Is The Motto Of A Pacific Northwest Bakery Group

June 11, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A century-old bakery group in the Pacific Northwest is making huge strides in its efforts to become landfill-free: recycling everything from product and packaging waste to scrap metal, used oils, paper, cardboard, and plastic. The store in Spokane, Wash., in fact, is 100 percent landfill-free, having figured out a way to recycle, re-use or repurpose just about everything the store consumes in running the business. For example, it filters bakery equipment lubricant oil to re-use as heating fuel for the heater in its truck maintenance garage. Whatever can’t be recycled is sent to a waste-to-energy plant to help provide electric power for the region.
