Tilcon Wins NSSGA Awards for Community Relations and Environmental Stewardship
The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association announced on January 29, the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners of NSSGA's Safety, Environmental and Community Relations Excellence Awards, in addition to the association's top honor-The Stars of Excellence for operations that accumulate Gold Awards in Safety Environmental or Community Relations over a five-year period.
Tilcon was awarded two Silver awards for Excellence in Community Relations for our Oxford, NJ and Haverstraw, NY operations and a Silver award for Environmental Excellence for our Mt. Hope, Wharton, NJ facility. Each award scored very highly in their respective categories and will be re-submitted again next year to be considered for the gold award level.
The NSSGA's awards program recognizes aggregates operations throughout the United States and Canada for their extraordinary commitment to Safety, for their superior performance as environmental stewards and for their community involvement and support activities that have enhanced the image of the aggregates industry during 2011 and 2012. The Stars of Excellence and all Gold Awards in each category were presented at the NSSGA's 2013 Annual Convention in San Antonio Texas in March.
Congratulations to each of these operations for their commitment to being good corporate citizens and recognizing the importance of environmental stewardship by promoting safe and healthy working conditions as well as being a good neighbor by supporting our communities where we work and live.
