Keeping Movie Sets out of Landfills
Posted June 20, 2011
Major film studios prevented 40 million pounds, or 66%, of studio sets and other solid waste from entering landfills last year alone. For instance, the NBCUniversal movie Hop prevented 34 tons of material, 85% of its location set waste, from ending up in a landfill. The Solid Waste Task Force, a joint program of the MPAA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, announced last year’s figure as the highest reported by studios since they began voluntary waste reduction programs 20 years ago!
