Driving Waste Reduction Worldwide

Jul 30, 2020 1:15 PM ET

Mohawk encourages our facilities throughout the world to pursue zero waste to landfill (ZLF) certification, which requires a plant to recycle or reuse 90% or more of its manufacturing process waste. To date, 50 Mohawk facilities have earned this certification. The most recent facility to achieve ZLF is the Georgia Hard Surfaces Bulk distribution center, the busiest distribution operation in our company. The site reduced waste to landfill by 57% in just six months to achieve 90% diversion. In the process, they found ways to reuse materials to benefit customers, such as cores that hold plastic wrap that are now being reused to stabilize product for shipping, which reduces damage.
