GM Steps up Recycling with Mexico Shoe Sole Project

Company has 131 facilities that send no waste to landfill

At our Toluca, Mexico facilities, our team works closely with resource management suppliers to find higher uses for their byproducts, such as turning polystyrene foam packaging into footwear.

We take the material to a warehouse where it is baled and sent to be crushed and densified into pellets. Those pellets are combined with other polymers to create shoe soles.

Thanks to this project and many others, these facilities recently achieved landfill-free status. We now have 131 sites around the globe sending none of their daily waste to landfill.
