Skanska honored for reducing waste

Waste Management recognized Skanska USA as one of 10 construction companies that diverted the highest tonnage of waste for recycling in 2014. Last year, USA Building nationally diverted 85 percent of its waste from landfills while USA Civil diverted 98.2 percent.

While those diversion rates are laudable, Skanska’s internal targets for recycling became even more stringent this year: Building and Civil both aim to divert at least 98 percent of construction waste.

This is the fourth year that Skanska has won this award. Waste Management is Building’s most-used waste provider, and it is one of many that Civil uses.
