Take a moment to think about your trashcan. How much time does it take to fill it up? What’s the least amount of waste you’ve ever been able to throw away in a week? The world’s largest manufacturer of consumer packaged goods, Procter & Gamble, is working to effectively eliminate waste to landfill from their factories worldwide. Since even the most efficient operations have waste, P&G created a team in 2007 to turn its manufacturing waste into something with of worth. Forbes McDougall, P&G’s Global Wastestreams leader, oversees the program in P&G plants across the globe. “We focus on a partnership approach with our sites and leverage the intellectual capacity of our waste management partners,” says McDougall.
