Veolia Recognizes Crescent Electric for Environmental Stewardship

Crescent's push to help customers recycle lamps, ballasts and batteries, combined with its success in sustainable lighting solutions earned it the Environmental Stewardship Award from Veolia Environmental Services.

Crescent Electric Supply Co., East Dubuque, Ill., has been selected as one of this year’s recipients of the Veolia Environmental Stewardship Award. In 2003, Veolia Environmental Services established the “Environmental Stewardship Award” to recognize Veolia customers who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to environmental stewardship through programs, policies and procedures that help to protect the environment by recycling electrical equipment, lighting and electronic wastes.

Over the past two years, Crescent Electric has quickly embraced the opportunity to provide recycling services to their customers. Crescent Electric’s national service area and dedication to sustainable lighting solutions have allowed their customers to increase recycling rates from 2011 to 2012 by 108% for lighting ballasts, 147% for batteries, and 406% for mercury-containing light bulbs, the company said in a release.

“Helping our customers implement a recycling mindset and program benefits not only the environment but helps them reduce liability and reduce costs,” said Chris Breslin, Crescent Electric’s COO.
