Read the full story from Environmental Leader.

Target already exceeded its 2020 goal to divert 70% of retail waste from landfills through reuse or recycling, according to the company’s newly published 2018 corporate responsibility report. As a result, Target set a new goal to achieve a 75% diversion rate by the end of this year.

In 2017, Target says the company diverted 74% of their retail waste from landfills through salvage, donations, organics, reuse or recycling.

“Our progress is a result of the Salvage and Waste teams’ efforts in managing the salvage, donation, organics, recycling and trash programs for US headquarters, distribution centers, and Target stores,” according to the report.
