Toyota's Engine Plants Achieve Zero Landfill Status

Erlanger, KY— Toyota announced that its Alabama and West Virginia engine plants have achieved zero landfill targets. They are the first of Toyota's North American plants to reach the environmental target as part of the company's 2006 Action Plan.

Earlier this year, the West Virginia plant became the first Toyota plant operating in North America to achieve zero landfill status. Located in Buffalo, West Virginia, the plant began production in 1998 and builds four-and six- cylinder engines and automatic transmissions.

The Alabama V8 engine plant, located in Huntsville, is the first North American Toyota plant to begin production as a zero landfill facility. Production began in April.

The engine plants have eliminated landfill waste by reducing material usage, recycling and resource recovery. The recovery is achieved by turning waste into reusable energy.

Waste reduction is one component of Toyota's overall Environmental Action Plan covering the period 2001 through 2006. The Plan also includes targets for air emissions, water conservation and energy saving. The over-arching plan will be phased into operation in a series of cycles with an overall reduction goal.
