Tredegar’s PE Films technical center in Richmond, VA recently achieved landfill free status, with 100% of operational waste being diverted from the landfill. The employee-led effort implemented a gaylord sorting system for production scrap and office waste for diversion by a third party. As of June 2020, 246,000 pounds of waste have been diverted since the program’s inception in the fall of 2019. This achievement marks Tredegar’s second facility to achieve a landfill-free designation; Tredegar’s Pottsville, PA plant achieved landfill-free status in 2019.
