indexMillerCoors recently announced that its Golden Brewery in Colorado, the largest single-site brewery in the United States, is landfill-free. The Golden Brewery will be the fifth MillerCoors brewery to become zero waste, and the achievement is significant, as no other brewery in the country has reached landfill-free status.

On average, the Golden Brewery eliminates 135 tons of waste per month through reuse and recycling. The site recycles paperboard, plastic, glass, metal and even brewing byproducts.

Kelly Harris, a shop floor technician for MillerCoors, played a key role in this process by conducting research and creating waste reduction plans that were used at the company’s first landfill-free brewery in Trenton, Ohio. Subsequently, MillerCoors implemented these waste reduction practices at other brewing facilities, including the Golden Brewery.
