Six Auburn-area facilities were among the 62 in the area to earn environmental awards from King County’s Industrial Waste Program for dedication to business practices that protected regional water quality in 2017.

Each year, the Industrial Waste Program, which operates as part of King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division, honors local facilities whose business practices contribute to regional pollution prevention goals.

Forty-one facilities earned Gold Awards for compliance with wastewater discharge regulations every month in 2017 with no violations, and 16 facilities earned Silver Awards for having no King County monitoring discharge violations in 2017.

Black Oxide LLC, of Auburn; Skills Inc., of Auburn; and the King County Solid Waste Division – Algona Transfer Station were Gold Award recipients.

Boeing Commercial Airplane, of Auburn; Tim’s Cascade Snacks of Algona; and Tri-Way Industries Inc., of Auburn received Silver Awards.

Since 1969, the Industrial Waste Program has required industrial facilities to pretreat wastewater before discharging it into the sewer to protect the King County’s conveyance and treatment systems, its workers, as well as the environment and public health.
