A team at Caterpillar Brasil Ltd. (CBL) in Piracicaba, Brazil, has improved its recycling index through a number of improvements to its scrap disposal program. The name of the recycling area has been changed to Byproduct Central to better identify it as an area for materials that can be a source of revenue. The team also has found a new receiver for scrap, consolidated and organized the area where recyclables are stored, and identified additional materials that can be recycled rather than thrown away. At the end of 2012, the facility's recycling index was 98.13 percent, on its way to a goal of 100 percent by 2020.
