Cintas center recognized for waste diversion
The facility was certified as a result of diverting at least 90 percent of its waste stream from landfill and incineration, having a zero waste policy in place and meeting the TRUE Zero Waste certification requirements over the past 12 months, according to a release.
The goal for businesses participating in the TRUE Zero Waste certification is to divert all end-use materials from the landfill, incineration (waste-to-energy) and the environment. Cintas launched its initiatives in 2013 and has since had six distribution locations certified.
The company is also working to expand a model of its zero-waste-to-landfill program for its rental laundry plants and rental locations.
