At Dieffenbach’s, we work actively towards reducing our impact on our environment and our neighbors by being landfill free. One way we accomplish this is through a partnership with a waste solutions firm that turns our trash into energy. We compact our trash and send it to one of the incinerators in the area. In 2018, we sent approximately 203 tons of trash to these waste-to-energy sites. The result were:
8,563 gallons of oil saved
112,134 kilowatt hours generated
71,196 sq. ft. of office space powered
133 cubic yards of landfill space saved
If the average home used 1080 killowattt hours per year, we are helping to power approximately 103 residential family homes in our area each year.
