Cintas Recognized as “Good Corporate Citizen” by Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts

CINCINNATI � The Sanitation Districts of Los Angels County recently presented Cintas Corporation�s (Nasdaq: CTAS) Ontario, CA facility with its �Good Corporate Citizen� certificate for wastewater compliance.

Now in its eighth year, the certificate program was created by the Sanitation Districts’ Industry Advisory Council to recognize companies for outstanding compliance. To qualify for the award, companies must have met their limits for wastewater discharge, remained free from any notices or violations in 2003, maintained their environmental equipment, and fulfilled all of their permit requirements.

“It’s appropriate to recognize companies which have devoted time and money to achieve full compliance,” said Paul Martain, head of the Sanitation Districts’ Industrial Waste Section. James Stahl, Chief Engineer and General Manager of the Sanitation Districts added, “As far as we’re concerned, the 381 companies receiving certificates are our model citizens.”

Cintas’ boasts an impressive environmental compliance record across North America – a record that the company believes is the best in the industry. Cintas’ proactive approach to wastewater pretreatment helps the Sanitation Districts maximize the recovery of resources and reclaimed water. “This recognition reflects our commitment to the environment and the level of excellence we strive to attain at all of our facilities across North America,” said Scott Farmer, President and CEO of Cintas.

In addition to the Sanitation Districts’ “Good Corporate Citizen” certificate, Cintas’ Springfield Missouri facility received the Missouri Water Environment Association’s “Gold Award” for wastewater pretreatment achievement in 2003. Fortune Magazine named Cintas one of America’s most admired companies each year from 2001 to 2004, and America’s “Most Admired Company” in the diversified outsourcing industry in 2001 and 2004.
