MillerCoors Albany Recycles 99% of its Waste

This story comes to us courtesy of the Albany Herald. I posted a few weeks back about Millercoors reaching record low usage of water and now it looks like they have been putting massive recycling programs in their US plants.  This is just marketing you say. Well maybe but we need to wait for the commercials. One factor could be that by recycling the waste product they generate revenue, up to $1.5 million at the Albany plant. So instead of paying to haul away 40Tons of waste every month, they are getting paid to have it hauled away.
