NC Manufacturer Recieves Environmental Award

In October, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality awarded Eaton, an electrical manufacturing company with a facility in Arden, N.C., with a 2019 Environmental Steward Plaque in recognition of the site’s environmental stewardship accomplishments.

The site has sent zero waste to the landfill since December 2017, according to a DEQ press release.

“We achieve our [Zero Waste-to-Landfill] goals by reuse, recycling, composting and incineration for energy generation,” reads a statement in Eaton’s 2018 Sustainability Report. — By Jack Singletary
