Soon after our Pleasanton, California, facility became our first site to achieve Zero Waste status, it was quickly followed by our facilities in Kingsland Grange, UK; Bleiswijk, The Netherlands; and Regensburg, Germany. Comprehensive, external audits validated that more than 90% of the non-hazardous waste from these sites now finds a home somewhere other than a landfill. By engaging employees and aggressively implementing a variety of innovative recycling, composting, and waste reduction programs such as a glove recycling partnership with Kimberly-Clark, Pleasanton and the others charted a course to prove that zero waste is indeed achievable. In a nod to the Zero Waste Alliance standard, we define zero waste as 90% diversion of non-hazardous waste, with incineration-for-energy as a last resort. Two more sites--Lohne, Germany and Eugene, Oregon-- were certified in 2013.
