Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) awarded three environmentally conscious employees of certified 4R Star businesses at the 6th Annual 4R Star Business Employee Recognition Brunch on Friday, October 25th. Businesses certified through the 4R Business, 4R Planet program maintain recycling and composting rates well over 60% in large part due to the efforts of their employees who implement programs and practices to promote the 4R’s - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot (organics).
These 4R Star business employees made waste reduction a priority at their workplaces and were recognized by CVSan.
