Deere and Company is a diversified manufacturer of John Deere farm, industrial and consumer product equipment. Since the authors make 98% of the components that are assembled into a final machine, a wide diversity of hazardous wastes are managed. Operations such as melting scrap iron to make castings, electroplating and metal finishing are historically known to create hazardous waste. However, Deere and Company has reduced its hazardous waste disposal activities 80% by 'volume' and over 99% by 'level of risk' through two key actions: Development of a comprehensive corporate hazardous waste management strategy; Construction of a liquid hazardous waste treatment facility capable of producing nonhazardous sludges.
