Success: Global Pharmaceutical Corporation

Context & Challenge

A billion-dollar pharmaceutical company faced a critical challenge as their existing recycling program had become stagnant, resulting in significant amounts of waste heading to landfills. The inefficiency of the program not only posed environmental concerns but also represented a missed opportunity to maximize recycling efforts and minimize the environmental impact of the company’s operations.


In response to this challenge, IMPACT Recycling Partners intervened with a tailored approach to optimize the pharmaceutical company’s recycling efforts. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive strategy, IMPACT designed a program specifically tailored to capture all of the company’s recyclable commodities, addressing the gaps in their existing recycling initiative.


The implemented recycling program by IMPACT proved to be a game-changer. By customizing a solution to capture all recyclable commodities, the pharmaceutical company witnessed a significant diversion of waste away from landfills. Thousands of pounds of materials that were previously destined for disposal were successfully redirected into the recycling stream, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly operation.

This successful collaboration highlighted IMPACT’s ability to address and enhance recycling initiatives, resulting in a substantial reduction in landfill-bound waste for the pharmaceutical company. The positive impact of this tailored recycling program resonated not only in the company’s bottom line but also in its contribution to a more sustainable and environmentally conscious approach to waste management.
