The MillerCoors brewery in Eden will no longer send trash to the landfill, according to Godanriver.com.
The brewery reportedly recycles of reuses almost 100 percent of all waste. The remaining trash that cannot be recycled is sent to a waste energy facility in Virginia.
The facility has been working to reduce landfill waste over the past several years, said Drew Lucas, the plant's environmental health and safety representative.
More than half of landfill waste has been reduced from 2007 and from 2008-2009, a 15-percent reduction in waste going to the landfill was achieved by the brewery.
