IESI Reports Recent Environmental Achievements

FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- IESI-BFC Ltd. (NYSE, TSX: BIN) (IESI-BFC), a leader in the U.S. solid waste industry, makes it a top priority to protect and enhance the environment.  In 2009, the company invested $16 million in programs designed to improve the environment in its communities.  These programs include wetland preservation at landfills, expansion of waste-to-energy programs, and construction of green LEED certified facilities.

"Our company made tremendous advances in our commitment to the environment over the past year," said Mickey Flood, President and Chief Executive Officer of IESI Corporation (IESI).  "We don't just talk about improving the environment.  We act, and the results are tremendous.  This is part of our commitment to our customers and our communities of achieving our goal of a greener environment."

IESI is proud to announce the results of its 2009 environmental programs. The marquis environmental accomplishment for IESI in 2009 was the construction and opening of what will be the first LEED Certified privately-funded single-stream material recovery facility (MRF) in the United States upon final certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. After only five months in operation, the IESI McKinney MRF processed more than 8,500 tons of material--more than tripling the output from the same timeframe in their previous facility. The new McKinney MRF is on target to achieve Gold LEED Certification.

"LEED certification is not an easy task to achieve, especially for a manufacturing facility," said Shawn Eiras, IESI McKinney district manager. "This first-of-its-kind facility in the country allows us to process material more efficiently, reduces the amount of contamination being diverted from the landfill, creates a pleasant working environment for our employees, and gives us a wonderful educational resource for our community."

The new 28,000 square-foot McKinney MRF contains numerous sustainable features including certified wood, recycled steel, low-flow water fixtures, and energy efficient machinery. Because the facility utilizes the single-stream process, customers can combine paper, glass, metals, cardboard and plastics all in one large container.
