As of this month, the company has four zero-waste facilities in Pennsylvania.
Three are chocolate plants: The site in Hazelton reached its zero-waste goal last week; the firm’s West Hershey factory became zero waste in 2011; and the Reese’s plant in Hershey achieved zero waste in 2010.
The Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction also attained zero waste status in 2010. The site is a visitors’ center, rather than a plant, but has several features whose waste is diverted from landfills. There’s a restaurant, a store, and an area where visitors can order up and help make customized candy bars.
