Chattanooga, TN (February 27, 2014) – The ongoing efforts by EPB employees to reduce waste and pollution in the greater Chattanooga area are being recognized by the Tennessee Recycling Coalition, which has named us as the 2013 Government Recycler of the Year.
The Tennessee Recycling Coalition noted several initiatives that contributed to this award. The downtown building consistently recycles 70%-80% of its waste stream, while promoting recycling for the public through the recycling program in the parking garage. These efforts contributed to our June 2013 LEED Certification, according to Environmental Policy Administrator Elizabeth Hammitt.
“It is humbling to see our employee’s commitment to improving quality of life in the community being recognized, as we follow Chattanooga’s lead in making our city a better, cleaner place to live,” said President and CEO Harold DePriest.
