Beer company MillerCoors has announced all of its major breweries are now landfill-free.

Its Fort Worth Brewery in Texas is the eight and final major facility to achieve the milestone, reducing waste by 30% last year compared to 2014.

Nearly 100% of its waste is either recycled or reused, with a small amount of the remaining waste going to an energy recovery facility.

Since 2009, MillerCoors has reduced its waste across the organisation by 89%, equivalent to keeping more than nine million pounds of waste out of local landfills.

Kim Marotta, Director of Sustainability said: “As we continue our journey to brew a sustainable future, maintaining landfill-free operations at all our major breweries will make a significant impact.

“While we continuously strive to reduce waste, we will also remain focused on our other sustainability priorities, including preventing drunk driving, further decreasing our water use, lowering our carbon emissions and making greater investment in our people and our communities.”

The organisation has also set a target of achieving landfill-free operations at all its major manufacturing sites in the US.
