Recycling has been a part of ILI’s waste management program for many years. This year though, we are stepping up our game and setting an aggressive goal of reducing our waste to landfill by an additional 50%. In our first full month of a new waste management program, we have exceeded that goal. We attribute our early success to combination of a new organics collection program and increased education efforts for our staff. “We are very excited by how all of our employees have embraced the new program,” explains Connie Theisen, HR Manager, “people are happy to do their part, and are glad that we’re taking steps to be more sustainable.” Waste management is only one small part of our overall sustainability program, but it is one of the most visible. It is also something that our employees take home with them, further decreasing waste to landfill.
