Videon Honored at Green Business Awards Ceremony

State College, PA -- Videon Central, Inc. is honored to be named a Green Business Partner by the Centre County Recycling and Refuse Authority (CCRRA). Videon is one of sixty local businesses, schools and organizations to receive the award and have been recognized at a luncheon on Thursday, November 13th. Close to 100 representatives of the winning organizations attended the luncheon, where State College Borough Mayor Elizabeth Goreham delivered a keynote speech.

Videon received the Green Business Partner award for its efforts both in recycling and sustainability. In addition to commonly recycled items like paper, glass, plastic, aluminum and cardboard, Videon also recycles batteries and printer ink cartridges, metal used in its electronics manufacturing process and packing material from its shipping department. Videon also has a large compost bin that it feeds with kitchen scraps and coffee grounds for use on its on-site garden, in which it grows produce for its employee lunch program. Recently, Videon switched to using metal flatware for this lunch program in lieu of plastic silverware to reduce waste.

“One of Videon's priorities is to make sure that we have a positive impact on our community,” says Joan Potter, HR Director. “This wonderful location has helped us grow into the company we are today, and we feel strongly about giving back to Centre County whenever possible. Through our commitment to recycling and minimizing waste, we strive to help State College remain a prosperous and environmentally healthy area that our employees are proud to call home."
