New Report Positions Wastequip as Waste Industry Sustainability Leader through People, Planet and Profit Impacts

July 18, 2023

CHARLOTTE, NC, July 18, 2023 — Wastequip, North America’s leading manufacturer of waste handling equipment, released its first-ever sustainability report, detailing the company’s commitment to sustainability and benchmarks for the future.

“Most people interact with waste containers daily. As a manufacturer serving the waste industry, Wastequip has an incredible opportunity to integrate People and Planet into our industry, while running a successful business,” said report author Kristin Kinder, vice president of research and waste stream sustainability for Wastequip. “Since we started our corporate responsibility program, CORE, in 2020, we have focused on doing the work before talking about it. This report shares the depth and breadth of where that hard work has taken us and the future that foundation enables us to build.” 

The 2022 report details the company’s sustainability journey and achievements in the People, Planet, and Profit pillars that ground its CORE program, setting the stage for Wastequip’s future priorities. 

  • Planet: Wastequip is actively focused on producing products with less material — primarily through Project25 from Wastequip’s cart brand, Toter. The initiative aims to reduce virgin resin use by 25% in its cart manufacturing while maintaining the company’s unmatched durability. In 2022, Toter launched its cart buy-back program, released the industry’s first 100% recycled cart body, and reduced virgin resin per cart by 12.9%,  
  • People: Making Wastequip the best company its team members have worked for is another critical component of the company’s sustainability goals. The company has achieved and will continue to maintain gender pay equity. The report also outlines its commitment to diverse supplier partnerships, giving back to the communities Wastequip operates in, and to training and development programs for its workforce.
  • Profit: Since launching CORE, the corporate responsibility program has been led by a steering committee with cross-functional representation. Wastequip has also tied at least 10% of all executive bonuses to CORE-related objectives.
