Novolex knows that product sustainability is constantly evolving, and that growth in packaging solutions must be accompanied by sound corporate strategies to ensure food, healthcare, retail and industrial waste is managed efficiently and effectively. In 2022, the company pressed ahead with greenhouse gas reduction goals and major investments in recycling solutions. The company needed a comprehensive end-to-end recycling management partner that was capable of handling the monitoring, measuring, tracking and reporting to quantify landfill diversion efforts. Novolex turned to RoadRunner as its strategic partner to accomplish these goals.
RoadRunner’s comprehensive waste-to-landfill measurement program, leveraging proprietary technology and industry experts, enhanced Novolex’s ability to know how much waste they were producing and how much of it was going to landfill vs. being properly recycled.
RoadRunner was able to provide Novolex with reliable data showing the volumes and streams of materials being sent to landfills across the company’s North American footprint. This information meant that RoadRunner’s experts and Novolex’s leadership could partner to strategize solutions for waste stream reductions and find opportunities for landfill diversion.
Through partnering with RoadRunner, as mentioned in the company’s annual sustainability report, Novolex was able to divert five million pounds of waste from North American landfills, increase the company’s recycling rate to 82% of materials and decrease waste to landfill to 18%. This shared commitment to sustainable waste solutions backed by technology helped solidify Novolex’s position as a leading worldwide packaging supplier.
