Caterpillar achieves 'zero waste' goal at 2 UK facilities

Repost from

Two Caterpillar Inc. sites in England now claim bragging rights to 100 percent recycling, achieving a company goal of sending zero waste to landfill.

The firm based in Peoria, Illinois, said the hose assembly plant for the Caterpillar Remanufacturing & Components Division for the United Kingdom in Leicester hit the waste management target in 2010 and the Caterpillar Logistics Services, known as Cat Logistics, in Desford had maintained a 100 percent recycling rate for a year as of October.

The Desford site, which provides logistics services to a range of clients and distributes material around the world, had a longstanding recycling program in place and kicked it into high gear in 2008 to work toward the waste management goal.
