P&G Maine facility achieves zero waste to landfill status

The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) said that its Auburn, Maine manufacturing facility became the first P&G plant in North America to achieve zero waste to landfill.

The feminine care facility worked with both employees and suppliers to implement a process that beneficially uses 100 percent of its waste. Over 60 percent is recycled or reused, while the remainder is converted to energy.

Auburn is the ninth P&G global manufacturing plant to earn this distinction.
