In 2001, when Honda began working on waste, it was sending 62.8 pounds of industrial waste to landfill for each vehicle produced. By mid-2012, it expects to send 1.8 pounds per vehicle.
The first facility to meet the company's zero-waste goal was Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in 2001, and a few plants that simultaneously achieved zero landfill waste earlier this year capped off the effort, said Marcos Frommer, American Honda's manager of corporate affairs.
