TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2013 /CNW/ - At the 2013 Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) Annual Gala, GEEP (Global Electric Electronic Processing) was presented with two platinum awards for excellence in waste reduction and diversion in "Program Operator" and "Sustainable Product or Service" categories.
"Program Operator" category evaluates applications from private and public sector waste diversion program operators, recyclers and processors involved in residential or IC&I collection and/or processing.
"Sustainable Product or Service" category evaluates products or services that improve the management of resources, reduce wastes and/or minimize negative environmental impacts during their own life cycle or the life cycle of other goods and services as they are manufactured/produced, consumed or at the end of useful life.
These awards are a reflection of GEEP's commitment to continuous improvement in recycling technology and internal environmental practices. The RCO has recognized these attributes as an affirmation of the awards criteria. In order to achieve a platinum level score a repeat applicant will need to demonstrate a major improvement in the program with quantifiable outcomes. The award was proudly accepted by David Guest, Vice President Sales and Marketing, who was accompanied by other members of the GEEP team.
GEEP has been an RCO Award winner for eight consecutive years. It has also been recognized as one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies (seven times) and Deloitte Green 15 Technology Award winner (four times). Coupled with GEEP's pro-active and continuous commitment to exceeding compliance standards (ISO, e-Stewards, R2), GEEP is an industry leader and one of the most technologically advanced, environmentally friendly and compliant companies in the world.
