A large manufacturer of vitamin and nutritional supplements came to Quest looking to reduce their environmental footprint in a cost-effective manner.
Quest completed a series of plant assessments, measuring the waste baselines and calculating the company’s current waste management expenditures.
The Quest team identified various waste streams that could be cost-effectively diverted from landfills including plastics, cardboard, and other material. Additionally, Quest saw the need to install compacting equipment, which in turn maximized the value of material that could be recycled.
Quest analyzed and implemented programs at the plant resulting in recycling volume being completely inverted. Originally, the plant was recycling 20% and trashing 80% of material to landfill. Within months of program implementation, 80% of material being was now being recycled. In terms of volume recycled, Quest enabled the plant to recycle over 3,900 tons of cardboard in addition to responsibly disposing of 2,400 tons of trash.
