Telogy Inc. of Menlo Park is a first-time winner and six other BFI Menlo Park customers are repeat winners of a business waste-reduction award.
Since businesses generate about half of the state's trash, they are instrumental in achieving state waste-reduction goals, said BFI spokesman Duane Sandul.
Founded in 1984, Telogy Inc. makes refurbished electronic test and measurement equipment and employs 250 people in Menlo Park. Through re-use and recycling, Telogy reduced packaging and office paper waste by 1,500 cubic yards annually, saving the company $75,000, Mr. Sandul said.
Other Menlo Park businesses that had previously won the awards and were honored again are: Color Me Mine, Landec Corp., Menlo Atherton Plumbing, Reitman Physical Therapy, Stone-Quarre, Medical Claims Management, and Wellings & Co. CPAs.
The Waste Reduction Awards Program is sponsored by the California Integrated Waste Management Board. Winners can use the WRAP logo in advertising.
