An EnviroSolutions, Inc.-affiliated landfill, Copper Ridge, has been recognized with an environmental protection award by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection. The award is granted to deserving municipal landfills that uphold environmental excellence.
The award was received by Sandy Etter, General Manager of Copper Ridge Landfill, which is located in Capels, West Virginia. “We are all very proud of this award and what we have accomplished in order to receive it,” Etter said. “It is an honor to be recognized by the Department of Environmental Protection, and we will continue to provide our environmentally friendly services to the public.”
The Department of Environmental Protection’s annual environmental awards were originally created in order to acknowledge the achievements of state industries, municipalities, educators and community leaders who continually strive to protect the environment, while working to become better corporate neighbors and educating the citizens of West Virginia. Of the various categories receiving recognition for their efforts, Copper Ridge Landfill was selected for the Municipal Landfill division.
In order to be eligible for these industrial awards, companies had to show excellent environmental implementations as well as hold a record of complying with regulations and environmental authorities during 2012. Facilities could also be nominated by Department of Environmental Protection inspectors, whom review the locations in order to ensure their observance of state and federal laws.
Copper Ridge Landfill is a municipal solid waste landfill, which provides service to local residents and businesses as well long-haul truck and rail waste streams. Copper Ridge is a fully permitted, rail-served landfill, which accepts all types of non-hazardous waste materials. This particular award in the category of municipal landfill was presented to Copper Ridge since they share in the Department of Environmental Protection’s mission of encouraging a healthful environment while practicing environmental stewardship.
