Cintas center recognized for waste diversion

Cintas’ Reno, Nev., distribution center has received gold under the TRUE (Total Resource Use and Efficiency) Zero Waste certification system administered by Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI). 

The facility was certified as a result of diverting at least 90 percent of its waste stream from landfill and incineration, having a zero waste policy in place and meeting the TRUE Zero Waste certification requirements over the past 12 months, according to a release.

The goal for businesses participating in the TRUE Zero Waste certification is to divert all end-use materials from the landfill, incineration (waste-to-energy) and the environment. Cintas launched its initiatives in 2013 and has since had six distribution locations certified. 

The company is also working to expand a model of its zero-waste-to-landfill program for its rental laundry plants and rental locations.
