tesco gets even greener

Tesco has revealed that its Riverside distribution center, which is currently under construction, will house an extensive recycling and waste reduction program for its upcoming Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market stores.

The chain has partnered with San Diego-based Resource Management Group (RMG), a recycling and waste services company, to develop a new system to recycle the multiple display and shipping materials used in the stores’ operations.

“Both RMG and Fresh & Easy want to minimize our footprint on the environment,” Fresh & Easy CEO Tim Mason said in a statement. “Fresh & Easy chooses smart, capable partners who share our values. RMG is truly an extension of the Fresh & Easy team and they’ve developed an impressive recycling and waste-reduction program for us.”

Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed. While it has not announced its exact Inland locations, Tesco has submitted development plans or applied for state liquor licenses for at least 18 Fresh & Easy locations in 12 Inland cities.
