“The Environmental Excellence Gold Award recognizes YTMV for its demonstrated commitment to pollution prevention and elimination or reduction in waste, maintaining continued perfect compliance with industrial waste water and pretreatment standards,” said the company.

The Governor’s Environmental Excellence Award, presented during the 27th Annual Environment Virginia Symposium in Lexington, Virginia, recognizes the zero landfill operation project completed by YTMV in 2015.

The facility began implementing changes in 2013, and in just two years it reduced the landfill waste output from all waste generated to two %and finally to zero by September 2015.

YTMV received the Environmental Warrior Award presented by the VWEA as part of VWEA’s 2015 Industrial Waste and Pretreatment Environmental Excellence Awards Program. Also in 2014, YTMV was accepted into the Virginia Environmental Excellence Program (VEEP) with an E4 status, the highest status rating awarded by the program. As part of the program, YTMV will continue its efforts to improve energy efficiency, water resource management, chemical management, and environmental awareness among its employees.
