Ford Reduces Vehicle Waste By 40%
BRIGHTON, Mich.- Ford Motor Company has recently implemented a 5 year global waste reduction strategy to as part of their efforts to build a world class manufacturing system. Part of that plan includes a massive decrease in waste from the production process that would normally be sent to the landfill. By 2016, Ford will Reduce Vehicle Waste By 40%. Meaning just 13.4 lbs. of waste per vehicle will be sent to a landfill!

This is a drastic reduction is waste from production, but it's not the only thing Ford plans on during to reduce waste. The automaker's global waste reduction strategy will affect all areas of business, from working with global suppliers to using more eco-friendly packaging. Specifically, Ford plans to reduce waste by focusing on prevention, minimization, reuse, and recycling of waste whenever possible in order to establish more zero waste-to-landfill facilities globally and reduce the company's environmental impact.

Ford Motor Company's Van Dyke Transmission Plant has become an example, as the automaker's first North American zero waste-to-landfill plant. The Van Dyke Plant now diverts a whopping 15 tons of waste from being dumped in a landfill each month! And that's just one plant. Not to mention, last year Ford generated $225 million in revenue just by recycling 568,000 tons of scrap metal from the United States and Canada.
