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

for the award, companies must have met their limits for wastewater
discharge, remained free from any notices or violations in

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.”

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,

Corporate Citizen” certificate, Cintas’ Springfield
