Reducing Waste

Reducing waste is clearly the right thing to do environmentally, economically, and ethically. We take it seriously at AmSty and pursue waste reduction initiatives in manufacturing, supply chain, and even with the end use of our products. For example, our Hanging Rock, Ohio, plant started an improvement project in 2022 that reduced hazardous waste almost 10% from the prior year. We will finish the project at Hanging Rock this year and expand it to applicable plants. Once fully implemented, we expect to reduce total hazardous waste approximately 20% across our US plants. This dedication to eliminating waste is also a key driver in our aggressive efforts to accelerate the recycling of polystyrene products, covered previously in this report in more detail.
