Workhorse Brewery Used Impact Recycling Partners to Divert Waste From Landfill to Biofuel

Workhorse Brewing Company, a Pennsylvania-based beer manufacturer and taproom, teamed up with Impact Recycling Partners to use modern sustainability practices and reduced costs versus hauling waste to an overcrowded landfill.  

Mary Linn Leonards, Chief Revenue Officer with Impact Recycling Partners explains, “This is true sustainability. From their doors to our facility, we used our state-of-the-art depackaging equipment and a proven process to separate the beer from the aluminum cans. Once separated, the two resultant waste streams are recycled and diverted from the landfill. The aluminum went back to the mill and the beer off to an anaerobic digestor for conversion to biofuel.”

Workhorse Brewery manufactures custom-designed beer brands that are distributed to retailers throughout southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Its taproom includes a restaurant, retail store, and private events in 5000+ square feet of space in King of Prussia PA.

“From start to finish the destruction of our materials was extremely efficient,” adds James Gentile, Head of Brewing Operations at Workhorse Brewing Company. “Impact Recycling gave us comfort in being environmentally responsible. We also liked that they provided a circular solution to the aluminum and product.”

Impact Recycling Partners, a national provider of zero waste programs since 1956, today announced a partnership with One Tree Planted that aims to plant trees for landscape restoration. For every product or service order within its zero waste programs, Impact Recycling Partners will plant one tree.

“We are proud to be associated with the One Tree Planted organization,“ said Impact Recycling Partners Chief Revenue Officer, Mary Linn Leonards. “Sustainability drives our business mission, and while we make a tremendous impact for our customers, this partnership serves as another way to give back and help the environment.”

The objectives of this new partnership include:

  • Supporting global reforestation efforts
  • Empowering companies with sustainable actions
  • Raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration

Planting trees is consistently identified as one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help to clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat for over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Trees also provide lasting social impact by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities that are devastated by environmental damage.

“We are excited for the opportunity to work with Impact Recycling Partners on such an impactful project,” said One Tree Planted founder and Chief Environmental Optimist, Matt Hill. “We admire the company’s commitment to planting a tree for every product or service sold. It’s a prime example of how zero waste program companies can make a positive impact for our planet.”

The partnership is designed to be a simple way for customers to give back and get involved in global reforestation. For every product or service that is sold from Impact Recycling Partners, the company will give $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where deforestation has occurred.
