The California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery has recognized several Northrop Grumman Corporation sites as Waste Reduction Awards Program winners.
WRAP annually recognizes California businesses that have made exceptional efforts to limit the volume of recyclable waste products that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Several of Northrop Grumman’s sites have been honored, including the Aerospace Systems site in El Segundo, which won the WRAP award for the 13th consecutive year. The company’s Redondo Beach facility was also recognized this year. The two sites recycle 600 tons of waste annually.
Northrop Grumman’s subsidiary Continental Maritime in San Diego was awarded its first WRAP award for reducing waste in its ship repair activities by separating and recycling scrap metal and spent abrasive materials.
“Northrop Grumman continues to seek out new and innovative ways to ensure that we minimize the impact of our business on the environment,” said Tom McCabe, corporate director, Environmental, Health and Safety for Northrop Grumman. “Our waste reduction and recycling programs support our dedication to operating as a responsible company and good global neighbor.”
