All Vauxhall manufacturing plants now landfill-free

30 June 2016 #Sustainability Case studies

Luton Assembly and Ellesmere Port Assembly became landfill-free last year, joining the 21 General Motors facilities in Europe that recycle, reuse or convert to energy all waste from daily operations.

This made Europe the first global General Motors region with 100% landfill-free status for manufacturing plants. General Motors’ landfill-free count now totals 131 facilities.

Encouraging employees to buy into new working practices via training, and appointing designated champions in every unit of the plant to recognise individuals driving progress, played a key part of the transition to landfill-free operation.
