Kenworth plant awarded
The Kenworth Truck Company assembly plant in Renton, Wash., recently received a 2012 Best Workplace for Waste Prevention and Recycling Award from the King County (Wash.) Solid Waste Division for its exceptional efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle.
In addition to its latest award, Kenworth-Renton received a 2011 Gold Award from the King County Industrial Waste Program earlier this year. The award is for compliance with the plant’s industrial wastewater discharge permit and recognizes the plant for one year of no wastewater violations of any kind covering discharge, permit, ordinance, reporting, self-monitoring and King County monitoring. The plant has now received the Gold Award for 13 consecutive years.
