SSC worked with a Fortune 500 Pharmaceutical company to measure, characterize, and quantify material flows and all waste streams in order to properly understand facility operations. After evaluating the current system, SSC developed a waste diversion program strategy for two facilities resulting in a total of $2,300,000 in cost savings and over 570,000 lbs. of waste diversion opportunities. This operation zero waste strategy prepared this company to achieve Waste Diversion from Landfill certification from GreenCircle Certified.
