HATFIELD, PA. (Oct. 3, 1:45 p.m. ET) — Thanks to a local recycling and solid waste company, injection molder Rodon Group has been designated as a landfill-free facility.

Sustainable Waste Solutions LLC provides customers with landfill-free alternatives for waste disposal, including recycling and a waste-to-energy plant that generates electricity.

“We are more than happy to no longer have to haul trash to be land filled and on top of that, we’re saving money,” said Lowell Allen, senior vice president of manufacturing at Hatfield-based Rodon, in a news release.

Rodon has taken other steps on the path to sustainability, including installing plant-wide motion-sensor-activated high-efficiency lighting and upgraded cooling towers to save energy.

Rodon has more than 105 injection presses. The company molds parts for consumer products, medical, construction, pharmaceutical and toy customers, including its parent company, K’Nex Brands LP.
