TITAN America’s Pennsuco Complex became the first facility of its kind in the USA to be officially certified as a Gold Level Zero Waste Facility. To qualify for this Certification, we were required to demonstrate greater than 90% diversion from landfill use for a minimum of 12 consecutive months. This included reducing, reusing, recycling or composting discarded materials or recovering materials for productive use. Alongside this eff ort, waste costs for materials to landfill and other non-recycling initiatives for 2016 were around 17% below budget. Employee participation and education was crucial to this success, as were new policies and procedures, which will now be embedded across all locations in the Florida business unit.
