1 Landfill Free Peru, Indiana

2 Decrease waste disposal to landfill by 10% in FY2016 as compared to FY2008 on a production weighted basis One Zero Landfill facility per IOC by 2018. Smithfield Sustainability Goal

3 JMFG: 20% less waste to landfill in FY2013 as compared to FY2008 (production weighted) FY2008: 6.63 lbs/cwt FY2013: 5.30 lbs/cwt Landfill Reduction: So Far, So Good

4 Waste Management Hierarchy Landfill Waste  Energy Recycling (including compost) Reuse Waste Elimination/Source Reduction

5 Zero waste shipped to a landfill for a 12 month continuous period The percent of waste reused or recycled must be at least 50% of the total generated Incineration without energy recovery is limited to legally required disposal (hazardous and medical wastes) Stabilized and landfilled hazardous waste limited to 0.1% of the total waste generated. The total waste management cost must not exceed 5% above the baseline waste management cost. Zero Landfill - Smithfield Definition

6 FY2008 = 999 tons/year FY2011 = 440 tons/year FY2012 = 252 tons/year FY2013 = 25 tons/year Last landfill disposal was in May 2012 In June 2013, Peru met the Smithfield Foods definition of landfill free. Armour-Eckrich Peru, IN

Ensure Top Management Support: Mike Fritz, Plant Manager 5. 5. Get Buy-In from all Facility Team Members 6. 6. Partner with Recycling Firm that will take almost everything Step by Step Process:

11 o Color coded bags for improved sorting: o Black bags for plastics o Tan for trash o Clear for paper o Lock Trash Compactor! o Covanta: Waste-to-Energy Facility in Indianapolis for food scraps and anything else that cannot be recycled. Step by Step Process:

12 o Daily Plant Employee Meetings o Reviewed with the EMS Team o Town Hall meeting/Cookout o Review of material retrieved from trash compactor Educate, Reinforce New Waste Disposal Protocols & Update on Progress: This involvement helped employees improve their habits and inspired them to take pride in their contributions.
