Volvo CE Achieves Zero-Landfill Status

Volvo Construction Equipment’s (Gothenburg, Sweden) Shippensburg, Pa., facility is the company’s second site to achieve zero-landfill status, the company says.

The facility employs more than 800 people and consists of seven stand-alone buildings totaling over 830,000 square feet on 192 acres, Volvo CE says. In 2019, the site recycled 1,171 tons of scrap materials, Volvo CE says. It hopes to make several other sites zero-landfill by 2025 and all of its production sites zero-landfill by 2030. Visit
