Superior Essex recently announced that it has achieved a Zero Waste to Landfill certification for its copper data cable manufacturing facility in Hoisington, Kansas. This is the first Zero Waste to Landfill certification ever achieved by a communications cable manufacturer, and it is a designation that has been attained by very few manufacturers of any type. Superior Essex was awarded its Zero Waste to Landfill certification by GreenCircle Certified, LLC., a prominent third-party certifier of environmental claims.
Zero Waste to Landfill certification is a means of recognizing the achievement of a 100% landfill waste diversion rate. Landfill waste diversion, defined as the prevention and reduction of generated waste through source reduction, recycling, reuse, or composting, has been characterized as one of the best ways manufacturing companies can demonstrate genuine environmental responsibility.
“This achievement is the result of many years spent devising new ways to continuously reduce waste, and a testament to the dedication and hard work our Hoisington plant employees exhibited in reducing our environmental footprint,” says Tony Szot, Plant Manager of the Superior Essex Hoisington facility. “Through these continued efforts we have kept tens of millions of pounds of waste from reaching landfills.”
