CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble announced that its Auburn, Maine, feminine care facility became the first manufacturing plant in North America to achieve zero waste to landfill.
P&G said its Global Asset Recovery Purchases team assisted the company in reusing or recycling its waste. P&G said these efforts delivered tens of millions of dollars in cost recovery to the company in the past year alone.
"Auburn's success is the latest milestone in our continued global effort to achieve zero manufacturing waste sent to landfill," said Len Sauers, P&G VP global sustainability. "GARP is a terrific example of how internal innovation and external partnerships have joined to help realize the company's sustainability vision and goals."
Auburn is the ninth P&G global manufacturing plant to earn this distinction.
