    About the Winner
    Under the leadership of Mr. Jarvis, The Home Depot launched a program to turn waste from its stores into Trex decking. The process of creating this decking begins with collecting plastic waste generated from packaging and other sources at The Home Depot stores. Rather than sending these materials to landfills, it is collected and consolidated in The Home Depot’s Returns Logistics Centers (RLCs.) This project stretches across the entire supply chain, from The Home Depot stores, distribution and returns logistics centers to manufacturer, back to stores, and finally – to customers’ homes.

    Trex is an industry-leading composite decking product sold at The Home Depot. And it’s not only longer lasting and more durable than standard pressure treated lumber, but it is made of 95 percent recycled materials. Because of Ron and his team’s commitment to a sustainable supply chain, The Home Depot recycled more than 15.1 million pounds of plastic waste from their stores into Trex decking in 2019.
