MONROE, WA – Canyon Creek Cabinet Co. recently was awarded with an Association of Washington Business (AWB) Environmental Excellence Award, in the category of Leading Environmental Practices. AWB’s annual Environmental Excellence Awards distinguish member companies for their initiative, innovation and outstanding achievements in environmental compliance, protection and conservation.
Canyon Creek seeks out ways to reduce energy and materials consumption, such as altering its material waste into products other companies can use. For example, wood wastes, such as sawdust and shavings, are collected and recycled/repurposed by other companies as are the solvents and acetones used in its finishing process. The company has an ongoing lean process improvement program as well.
Previously, Canyon Creek was awarded the EPA’s Evergreen Award for Environmental Excellence and is a two-time winner of the Governor’s Award for Outstanding Pollution Prevention. Canyon Creek Cabinet also won the Washington Green 50 Manufacturing Award last year.
