Measuring Our Progress
Solid Waste Diverted From Landfills
In 2010, 73 percent of the solid waste we generated was diverted from landfills, up from 68 percent the previous year.
Waste is diverted from landfills through a combination of recycling, composting and energy recovery programs.
Boeing measures non-hazardous solid waste generated by our operations. This includes waste streams such as metals, wood, paper, cardboard, plastics and organic materials. It does not include hazardous waste, construction waste, remediation waste or asbestos abatement activities.
