18 January 2017

Titan America’s Pennsuco Complex received its Gold Level Zero Waste Facility, making it the only facility of its kind in the USA to achieve Zero Waste Status.

Randy Dunlap, President of Titan America's Florida Business Unit, commented, "The Zero Waste Certification is a remarkable accomplishment and consistent with Titan America’s commitment to striving for best-in-class sustainability practices. Congratulations to our Environmental Department and thanks to everyone at Pennsuco for their help and support. We should all feel very proud of this."

The Zero Waste project was initiated by Pennsuco's Environmental Engineer, Audrey Fulton, who credits employees and their environmental mindset for achieving zero-waste certification. "I couldn't be more thrilled," stated Ms Fulton. "Going through the Zero Waste certification process took us to a new level; it inspired us to discover new and innovative opportunities for recycling and reuse."

To qualify for Zero Waste Certification, the Pennsuco Complex was required to demonstrate that it was able to divert more than 90 per cent of its waste from landfill use for a minimum of 12 consecutive months. Strategies used to achieve this include reducing, reusing, recycling and composting discarded materials. The certification process also included an extensive on-site audit by Zero Waste Council members.
