Agromin, the green materials recycler for cities in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties, received an Environmental Business Journal's 2008 Bronze Achievement Award for its work in waste and recycling services.
Agromin was recognized for being one of the few green materials recyclers that specializes in the sustainable processing and recycling of materials. The company was singled out for using environmentally sound approaches to produce more than 240 soil amendment products for agricultural, public works and construction, landscaping and other applications. It was particularly credited with providing ag companies with a continual supply of compost and mulch for their orchards and crops, which helps farmers use less water, minimize erosion and cut down on the use of herbicides and pesticides.
"At Agromin, our goal is to create innovative means to support and advance
environmental sustainability," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin CEO. "Our customers, whether farmers, landscapers or weekend gardeners, help us in these efforts by using products from recycled green materials. We're honored that the Environmental Business Journal recognized Agromin's efforts."
An official awards ceremony honoring the award winners will take place at the Environmental Industry Summit in San Diego in February.
