G&K was one of only 12 organizations, and the only industrial laundry operation, in the Denver metropolitan area to receive the 2012 award.
“This is a great honor for our company, which reflects G&K’s commitment to environmental stewardship and water conservation,” said Dick Stutz, G&K’s Senior Vice President of Operations. “Over the past two years our team in Denver has made a concentrated effort to improve wastewater treatment and reduce fresh water usage. This award validates the success we’ve achieved.”
In 2012, G&K’s Denver facility completed the installation of an industry-leading water treatment system. The system allows wastewater generated in the laundry process to be cleaned and re-used in subsequent wash cycles. The facility is now re-using approximately 65 percent of its wastewater.
G&K Services is an industry leader in the design, development and implementation of environmentally responsible industrial laundry practices. The company continually strives to maximize efficiency and reduce its consumption of water, energy and chemicals. G&K Services has processes in place to minimize wastewater pollutants and ensure compliance with environmental regulations at all of its locations.
