Sunny Delight Achieves Zero Waste in U.S.
Sunny Delight Beverages Companyâ€™s recently released 2009 Sustainability Report outlines the companyâ€™s accomplishments over the past year, the most significant being the achievement of their Zero Waste to Landfill Goal by all U.S. and Spanish manufacturing plants more than 3 years ahead of schedule.
The zero waste goals were achieved at Sunnyâ€™s Anaheim, Mataro and Littleton plants in 2009, 4 years ahead of the companyâ€™s 2013 goals. Their Atlanta, Sherman and South Brunswick plants reached the same milestone in early 2010, making the entire company "zero-waste-to-landfill" from operations 3 years ahead of schedule. The waste reductions saved the company $169,000 in direct costs last year alone.
