The Keystone Foods plant in Reidsville, North Carolina, received the 2015 Clean Water Award from the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association. The annual award recognizes exemplary performance at water reclamation facilities serving the poultry industry. Keystone credits Planet Aid with helping decrease the plant's environmental footprint.

"Keystone Foods is proud to partner with organizations that focus their efforts on landfill reduction and reaching out to those in need. Planet Aid is one of those organizations. For over 2 years now, a Planet Aid yellow bin on our property has provided our employees an easy and convenient place to put used boots, cotton gloves and uniforms. Another easy and convenient part is that Planet Aid services the bin monthly free of charge. Our partnership with Planet Aid is keeping clothes and shoes out of our landfills while supporting projects that benefit those in need across our borders. Keystone Foods with Planet Aid is impacting our world inside our borders and outside our borders!”
-Tina Williams
Keystone Food Environmental Manager

A story about Keystone Foods in The Poultry Times notes that the facility has reduced the amount of waste sent to the landfill by more than 55 percent since 2008, and plans to be landfill free by 2020. Congratulations to Keystone Foods on this great accomplishment!
