The Industrial Waste Section of the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County presents “Good Corporate Citizen” certificates each year to businesses that are in full compliance with industrial wastewater discharge requirements.
While nearly 1,000 companies in the county are eligible as “significant” industrial users of the wastewater management system, only a few hundred earn this award by meeting the very strict standards.
For the 2018 awards, three of the honorees are from Paramount. All have shown a sense of social responsibility and protection of the environment by properly discharging their industrial wastewater, which keeps it off our beaches and out of the ocean. They deserve a big “green” thank you.
The Paramount companies are: Ace Clearwater Enterprises, ST & I, Inc., and World Energy. The City of Paramount was also recognized.
Representatives from the businesses who could attend were recognized at the October 1 City Council meeting.
