Boeing turns to Kaiser Aluminum for recycling effort

Wed., Feb. 26, 2014, 10:10 a.m.

Boeing will send 22 million pounds of aluminum scrap each year from its factories to Spokane Valley to be recycled.

The metal will arrive at Kaiser Aluminum’s rolling mill in Trentwood, where workers will re-melt the scrap alloys and then reuse it to make aluminum sheet and plate that is sold to Boeing and other manufacturers.

Both companies hailed the program as a way to reduce waste as industries constantly seek ways to reuse materials to save time and money.
