The Mid-Willamette Valley Green Awards recognized Chemeketa for our sustainable operations at an awards ceremony Saturday March 11 at the Willamette Heritage Center.
Green Awards have been given to businesses, organizations and people who demonstrate a commitment to the environment for the past eight years in the Mid-Willamette Valley.
The college was recognized as the EarthWISE Business of the Year for a bundle of practices –
- Dedicating more than 7,000 square feet to house repaired, repurposed or recycled surplus property
- Ninteen water bottle filtration stations on the Salem Campus, which kept roughly 321,000 plastic water bottles out of the landfill last year
- LED lighting remodels, including in our parking lots
Congratulations to Steph Fregosi, sustainability coordinator and the entire Facilities department.
