Waste Management

As we have publicly advocated in recent years, it’s time for the recycling industry to focus on GHG emissions reduction as the life cycle goal of waste and materials management programs. Matching words to action, we have set ambitious new goals for our business. Over the next 20 years, we intend for our waste solutions and services to result in an overall reduction of GHG emissions four times greater than generated by our own operations. In 2017, that ratio was three. Our journey to four will be supported by two additional goals: reducing fleet emissions by 40 percent through renewable fuel use in our growing fleet of natural gas vehicles; and collecting two million more tons of recycled materials to offset emissions associated with raw material use by 20 percent.
