Going Landfill Free
We are continually looking for new ways to reuse, recycle and recover energy when disposing of manufacturing by-products. Our current efforts include composting, recycling, energy production, and the provision of safe products for animal feed.
- At the end of 2017, 73% of our total factories in the U.S. – spanning confections, dairy, frozen and refrigerated meals, ice cream, baking ingredients, and beverages – are now landfill-free, contributing zero waste for disposal.
- Nestlé USA distribution centers are also landfill-free, meaning that all the waste generated from our normal operations is reused, recycled, or converted to energy.
