Allegheny Mineral Quarries Honored for Environmental and Community Excellence
The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) recently announced the winners of its annual Environmental and Community Relations Excellence Awards. These prestigious awards are presented annually to aggregate producers throughout the United States and Canada, in an effort to recognize operations in the aggregate industry for their pursuit of excellence. Those recognized truly represent the best within the aggregates industry and are applauded for their superior performance as environmental stewards, extraordinary commitment to safety, community involvement and support activities that have enhanced the image of the aggregates industry.
The Environmental Excellence Award program was created in 1992 to provide national recognition for aggregate producers that meet and exceed technical, environmental and regulatory requirements. Producers nominated for this award must show that their operations are actively contributing to the maintenance of the environment in and around their operations as evidenced by a corporate commitment to the exemplary use of environmental controls and systems. Allegheny Mineral Corp. is pleased to announce that the Slippery Rock Quarry was selected for the Silver Environmental Excellence Award. The Princeton Quarry and the Graff/Worthington Quarry have been selected as recipients of the Bronze Environmental Excellence Award.
The Community Relations Award program was begun in 1989 to recognize aggregate producers whose community involvement and support activities enhanced the public’s perception of the aggregates industry in general and the public image of the individual producer’s aggregate operation in particular. NSSGA firmly believes that an active community relations program is the best way for an aggregate producer to demonstrate clearly that an operation can be and, indeed is, an asset in any community; and that the individuals who manage and work at aggregate operations are both good neighbors and responsible corporate citizens.
The ultimate goal of the Excellence in Community Relations Award program is improvement of the public’s perception of both local crushed stone, sand and gravel operations and the aggregates industry by generating positive media exposure. Allegheny Mineral Corp. is pleased to announce that the Princeton Quarry was selected for the Silver Community Relations Excellence Award. The Slippery Rock Quarry and the Graff/Worthington Quarry have been selected as recipients of the Bronze Community Relations Award.
“Our extraordinary success is attributed to the involvement and commitment of our entire workforce in the hands-on proactive approach,” said Dennis Snyder, company president. “Every one of our employees takes responsibility for environmental performance and community involvement.”
