It´s Miller (Recycling) Time

Sounds like it's Miller time to me!

Oct. 10 -- Miller Brewing Co. recycled nearly 100 percent of its brewery waste, according to the company’s first Sustainable Development Report.

The Milwaukee-based brewer detailed 10 global sustainable development priorities, such as conservation, recycling and community impact, in the report.

In 2006, the company’s breweries recycled 99.3 percent of their waste, including glass, aluminum, cardboard and organic residue. Miller also reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent per barrel of beer over the past two years, equivalent to offsetting the carbon output of one of its breweries for a year.

Last year, the company conserved 196 million gallons of water through efficiency programs, enough to brew and package 21 million cases of beer.
