“Collaborating and sharing ideas with other business leaders through events like this benefits not only Bridgestone, but more importantly, it encourages continued commitment to environmental sustainability practices,” Ms. Scher said. “Bridgestone has many innovative national and global sustainability efforts underway, and we are honored to be included in the conversation and to share our lessons learned.”
Bridgestone showcases enviro best practices
Ms. Scher discussed Bridgestone's “Tires4ward” tire recycling program and zero waste to landfill achievements at its tire manufacturing facilities in the Americas. The company's Wilson, N.C., passenger and light truck tire plant; LaVergne, Tenn., truck and bus tire plant; and Aiken, S.C., plant have all achieved zero waste to landfill, she said. The Americas Technical Center reached zero waste to landfill in May 2014.
The National Zero Waste Business Conference is hosted annually by the U.S. Zero Waste Business Council with the goal of helping companies identify waste reduction methods, collaborate with others in the industry and ultimately achieve zero waste to landfill.
