NSF, Sustainable Waste Solutions Provide Landfill-Free Verification

NSF Sustainability, a division of the global public health organization NSF International, has partnered with Sustainable Waste Solutions to provide landfill-free verification.

Through the verification process, NSF International and Sustainable Waste Solutions will assess companies to document that all waste generated is reused, recycled or processed as waste to energy.

Sustainable Waste Solutions provides recycling and waste management services to customers in food manufacturing, pharmaceutical, high tech, automotive, defense, packaging and other industries.

NSF International’s landfill-free verification enables companies to demonstrate that less than 1 percent of their process waste goes to landfill for disposal and that they have documented waste management procedures and trainings in place.

Qualifying for NSF landfill-free verification also requires:

  • Retaining documentation and tracking all waste streams.
  • Maintaining containers to manage waste.
  • Establishing a program for electronic waste management.
  • Employee and contracting training.
  • Audits of the facility to ensure these procedures are in place.

Earlier this month General Motors’ manufacturing facility in Rochester, NY, became landfill-free, bringing GM’s landfill-free facility count to 109, which it says is more than any automaker. The company has committed to achieving 125 landfill-free facilities by 2020.

  1. If only all companies are like this then the world we are living in is perhaps safer from the effects of climate change from global warming. Companies better start acting now before it is too late.
