NRMCA Announces Winners of Environmental Excellence Awards

SILVER SPRING, MD -- The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has announced the winners of the 2011 NRMCA Environmental Excellence Awards. Winning submissions in four categories based on plants' production volume came from across the United States; each was reviewed by a panel of judges who based their collective decision on a written narrative that covered 11 evaluation criteria and photographs.

The competition is co-sponsored by Concrete Products magazine and offers producers national recognition for outstanding contributions in protecting the environment and maintaining sound environmental management practices in their operations. The program salutes companies that have not only met, but surpassed governmental compliance requirements and demonstrated a commitment to environmental excellence through plant and staff investment. Eligible plants were NRMCA producer members located in the U.S., its territories or Canada.

"These plants have demonstrated that they are the 'best of the best' when it comes to being good stewards of the environment," said Gary Mullings, NRMCA senior vice president of operations and compliance.
