Invested in Kentucky

KPPC is a non-profit technical resource center and part of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville.

"The assessments conducted by KPPC demonstrated that in addition to the environmental benefits waste prevention and recycling offer, waste reduction improves operational efficiency and reduces costs. Prior to our partnership with KPPC we recycled 83% of the waste we generated, but an audit of our trash showed that nearly 50% of what was in our compactor could also have been recycled.
