Tyson Achieves Zero Waste Landfill at Six Plants


Chick-NewsGold-Level validation has been granted to Tyson Foods with respect to six broiler plants in Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Georgia that have achieved Zero Waste to Landfill status.  All of the plants recycle animal waste to byproducts and have eliminated delivery of other materials include packaging, compost, liquids, and food to landfills.



Tyson Foods has designed integrated waste management systems that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions with all facilities subject to third-party validation.  To achieve the Zero Waste to Landfill Gold-Level certification, each plant was required to document methods for handling waste and avoid disposal to landfills.
