Recycling has become part of the culture at Bard. A variety of programs have been implemented at our locations around the world, diverting tens of thousands of pounds of waste electronics, paper, cardboard, metal, plastic, batteries and glass from landfills each month.
For example, the Bard manufacturing facility in Reynosa, Mexico was recycling about 66% of the waste it generated as recently as 2009, including plastic runners, empty trays and other mixed plastics. Late that year, the facility began a program to collect paper, used pallets and empty containers and send them out for recycling. Today, approximately 86% of the facility’s waste is kept out of landfills and responsibly recycled.
