Safety-Kleen was recognized by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) Environmental Stewardship Initiative for what the agency termed "voluntary and proactive measures to go beyond compliance to improve the environment and ensure a sustainable future." The DEP awarded the Plano, Texas-based recycling and remediation company a "Certificate of Stewardship," specifically recognizing its recycle center in Linden, N.J.
The Linden facility was selected for achievements in six categories: environmental policy, environmental management system, greenhouse gas emissions calculations, purchasing policy, water exchange program and vendor/supply chain requirements.
"This important acknowledgement of our extra efforts reflects on the entire company's dedication to 'make green work' for our customers," said Safety-Kleen CEO and President Frederick J. Florjancic in a press release. "We appreciate the recognition and intend to continue working to meet and exceed requirements for environmental stewardship."
