The M. K. Morse Company was recognized for its approach toward environmentalism and reduced waste at its global headquarters in Canton, Ohio.
Mayor Thomas Bernabei presented Morse President John Sweeney with the 2021 Mayor’s Award for Environmental Quality Control on May 4 in the company’s Canton manufacturing facility.
Each year, the Canton Water Reclamation Facility recognizes one company that has been in full compliance with the city’s Pretreatment Program, implemented policies to control industrial waste, taken pollution prevention actions to reduce waste and replaced hazardous substances with non-hazardous materials.
Morse’s Development, Maintenance and Engineering departments partnered to create best management practices to reduce the amount of harmful chemicals used in the manufacturing facility and replace them with safer solutions. The company also reevaluated its disposal methods and found safer and more cost-effective solutions that are being utilized throughout the facility.
