Clean Earth Receives 2017 Gold Award from King County


JULY 9, 2018

Last month, the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks Industrial Waste Program in King County, Washington, awarded Stericycle Environmental Solutions, Inc. DBA Burlington Environmental LLC (now Clean Earth) with the 2017 Gold Award.

This award recognizes the company’s compliance with the terms and conditions of its wastewater discharge permit in 2017. It also recognizes the company’s efforts to protect the King County treatment works and the water quality of the Puget Sound region.

King County’s Rewards and Recognition Program recognizes industrial wastewater dischargers that meet or exceed wastewater discharge permit requirements. Awarded winners help protect public health and the environment by controlling the discharge of substances that can degrade wastewater treatment, harm workers, damage facilities or reduce water and biosolids quality.

  • Had an active industrial wastewater discharge permit each month
  • Discharged industrial wastewater at least three months
  • Collected all samples required by its permit
