Unilever UK Achieves Zero Landfill Status
Consumer products brand Unilever has become a “zero to landfill” manufacturer in its U.K. operations, the company has announced.
The company now recycles 97 percent of its waste through its waste contractor Veolia. The remaining three percent is converted into energy, Unilever says.
Sonoco is aiming to divert 99 percent of operational waste from landfills with programs in progress at five plants, in the company’s packaging services, consumer packaging, and tubes and cores operations. The company also established a goal of having 10 percent of its global manufacturing operations achieve landfill-free status by 2015.
