Environmental award for TenCate Advanced Composites USA

TenCate Advanced Composites USA in Morgan Hill (California, US) received the Business Recycler of the Year award.

This annual award was presented to the company by Recology South Valley in recognition of the exceptional job it has done in reducing waste and increasing recycling. Recology also took into consideration other aspects such as achievements in conserving water and energy.

TenCate in Morgan Hill recycles 21m3 cardboard and approximately 1 cubic metre of paper, plastic, cans and glass every week. In addition they recycle scrap, wooden pallets, electronics and batteries.

‘It goes without saying that we do what is best for the environment’, said Michael Cichon (director, product marketing). ‘By reducing water consumption and the amount of waste produced and recycling more effectively, you also make tangible cost savings.’
