Local companies recycling all waste

Food processing companies in Greater Hazleton are committed to sustainability in their operations, with several of them achieving “zero-waste-to-landfill” status.

Cargill Meat Solutions in Humboldt Industrial Park has recently become one of the facilities that no longer sends waste to a landfill. The company will be audited in January to receive certification for the “zero-waste-to-landfill” designation. In recognition of its efforts, the facility received this year’s Green Business of the Year award from the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce.

Cargill is also replacing all the lighting in its Hazleton facility, making a $200,000 investment to convert to LED lighting in order to reduce energy usage and improve lighting.

Bimbo Bakeries’ plant in Valmont Industrial Park is another facility that places a high priority on environmental initiatives, including recycling.

“Corporately, we had a goal to achieve zero-waste-to-landfill status by 2015, but our plant is already there. The waste we generate is all being recycled. We take a great deal of pride in our commitment to sustainability,” said Plant Manager Dave Cole.

The Hershey Company’s Hazleton facility achieved “zero-waste-to-landfill” (ZWL) status in 2012 as a result of the company’s ongoing efforts to enhance sustainability through recycling and waste management.

“We are proud of our role as stewards of the environment and of our progress in eliminating waste from our operations,” said Terence O’Day, senior vice president of global operations at The Hershey Company. “We achieved ZWL at these facilities through a rigorous process of eliminating waste, recycling and converting waste to energy. Our employees understand the importance of sustainability across our company and are working together to reach our reduction goals.”

The Hershey Company has also added biogas capturing equipment at several of its U.S. facilities, including the one in Hazleton. The equipment captures biogas produced through onsite wastewater treatment and converts it to energy, decreasing the company’s reliance on fossil fuels.
