Recycle/Reuse Program for Construction Equipment Manufacturer
Dividing and conquering waste streams
A major U.K.-based construction equipment maker sought a more environmentally sound method of dealing with recyclables it was sending to a local landfill near its North American headquarters. While the manufacturer is known as a sustainability leader in Europe, its U.S. facility sent 100% of its waste to a local landfill—until the customer teamed up with Nexeo Solutions.
Nexeo Solutions analyzed the facility’s waste streams and designed a multi-step process to reduce waste and improve the plant’s overall environmental footprint. Through its network, Nexeo Solutions developed a vendor supply plan to manage the new recycling streams and carefully implemented the new process so the recycling and repurposing improvements worked successfully within the customer’s production operations.
