At its Aberdeen warehouse facility, Frito-Lay has made sustainability a top priority.  This food manufacturer has a 20-member Green Team and a 15-member Pollution Prevention Team.  The Green Team oversees the company's strict environmental guidelines and the Pollution Prevention Team maintains the Zero landfill initiative, which has resulted in 16 percent reduced landfill waste.  Frito-Lay has also set a goal of reducing its natural gas usage by 10 percent, electricity usage by 10 percent and water usage by 15 percent.

The company has adopted a highway route in Aberdeen, which employees clean up quarterly.  Frito-Lay employees visit schools regularly to educate students on environmental compliance, and they participate in the Earth Day event at Aberdeen's Festival Park.  In 2008, Frito-Lay recycled product waste, paper, cardboard, metal, aluminum cans, pallets, packaging waste, bulk bags and plastic containers.  after paying all waste bills, $130,551 was generated and put back into the recycling program.
