GENCO thus collaborates with Hershey into achieving ZWL status at the Western distribution centre, where its runs its operations.
As part of the initiative of reclaiming value from the waste materials, the process begins by removing trash comparator from the facility, followed emptying all the contents in the parking lot. Sorting process then begins where results are subject to classify as food/product waste, cardboard, trash, plastics, wood scraps, and broken pallets. All of these products could be subject to divert from going into the landfills. The focus then shifts into identifying the new ways of collecting recyclables all through the facility followed by training teammates on the new procedures. Volunteers coming from each shift thus form the ZWL committee that helps in identifying the best practices for recycling. The placement of receptacles was subject to plan strategically in a manner that coincides with areas where the recycled materials were subject to generate commonly in order to maximize use. GENCO currently works towards achieving ZWL status at the Midwest distribution centre, in Edwardsville, IL, all of which run operations for Hershey.
GENCO has the policy of reclaiming value from all returned and recycled materials as part of its integrated reverse logistics solutions. Recycling offers the last chance of reoccupying value in any product before it ends up into the landfill.

Currently, the company has the potential of reclaiming and extracting value from 95% of all products that could previously end up in the landfill. GENCO accomplishes this task through de-manufacturing, which is a process entailing disassembly of the finished goods in order to yield resalable components, scrap

There are different types of life-cycle models like the waterfall model, the agile model, or iterative incremental model which come into adaptation and application of software development. The selection of the model depends upon the type and nature of software being developed (Munassar & Govardhan, 2010).
One important aspect in this regard is of supply chain management. Supply chain management is gaining rapid popularity and attention in previous few years. Organizations are using the supply chain management strategies in order
One of the main reasons for this is when goods are faulty and the consumer wishes to return them to the manufacturers for replacement. Any movement of goods from below the supply chain upward therefore
tics involves the process of goods getting back to the manufacturer when they do not meet the prerequisite quality standards or any other defect that may render them unfit for consumption (Montgomery, 2008). The manufacturer may opt to recall products if they discover production
