Stater Bros. Introduces ‘Green Waste’ Composting Program in All Supermarket Locations
First ‘Green’ Load will arrive at Company’s Distribution Center on
The first “green” load will arrive at Stater Bros. Distribution Center, located at 310 South Tippecanoe Avenue in
On a daily basis, items such as produce trim and cull, waxed cardboard, wooden crates and paper will be loaded on pallets and returned via Stater Bros. delivery trucks to the Company’s Distribution Center. At the Distribution Center, the recyclable material will be loaded into a 21-ton compactor which will also be picked up daily by Community Recycling and transported to their composting facility.
Stater Bros. estimates that their new composting program will eliminate 20,000 tons from landfills each year. In a landfill, six tons of organic waste creates one ton of greenhouse gas, but a well managed compost facility does not produce any greenhouse gas. Therefore, the Stater Bros. Composting Program will eliminate over 1,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
Stater Bros. commitment to the environment goes beyond
