Publix to Increase Recycling Efforts

Pompano Beach, Fla. Publix has partnered with Organic Recovery to increase its recycling rate by 25% to 30% in 33 stores. By the end of summer 2008, Organic Recovery said it aims to serve all 84 Publix stores in Broward County, Fla.

“Organic Recovery presents an opportunity in fulfilling our mission to be intolerant of waste by diverting food waste that would typically be sent to local landfills, thus reducing the greenhouse-gas emissions,” said Publix VP of facility services, Dave Duncan. “We are pleased with the short-term results and look forward to long-term resolutions.”
