Week 1 of the Sustainable Solutions West Tour began in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area. Special thanks to Senior Sales Representative Samantha Halpern, and her Grainger Sales Representative, Kay, for doing the leg work to schedule the waste audit, and have Siemens well prepared for the arrival of the Sustainable Solutions Showroom. We emphasize that events can be done rain or shine, and this waste audit at Siemens in Grand Prairie was a testament to that. We weighed and sorted over 250 lbs. of waste in approximately 1 hour thanks to assistance of approximately 40 Siemens employees. Siemens had made a special request to sort into 12 different streams of recyclable materials, and we uncovered that they have been pretty successful at keeping recyclable materials out of the landfill/waste container, with improved labeling, education, and the proper receptacles Siemens will increase their diversion rate even further to greater than 75%. Looking forward to next week in sunny, Houston, TX.
