“From the start, we have committed to recycling our plant’s waste,” said Mike Shelhamer, Plant Manager of the Conklin facility. “Our employee-driven recycling program has been challenging but worth the effort.” Shelhamer continued, “Recycling is a critical part of Sustainability which is one of Ardagh’s “pillars” for operating. Achieving “Zero Landfill” status goes beyond this and I am proud of our team’s achievement.” The LEED Certified facility has been operating in Conklin since August 2010.
