HAWTHORNE, N.Y., May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Earlier this month, Wiedenbach Brown, the nation's premier lighting solutions provider, received the 2012 Electronics Recycling Award from Veolia Environmental Services, demonstrating the company's commitment to environmental stewardship through programs, policies and procedures that help to protect the environment by recycling lighting and electronics waste. 

"Wiedenbach Brown has established outstanding programs to promote environmental protection and product stewardship in operations, including recycling lighting and electronic waste from a large variety of customers nationwide," said Philip LoRicco, Regional Account Manager at Veolia. "Last year, Wiedenbach Brown nearly doubled the volume of recycling products with Veolia, placing the company in our top 5 accounts in the northeast territory."

Gary Popovics, Wiedenbach Brown's Maintenance, Repair & Operations Director said, "Eleven states require recycling of lamps and ballasts with hazardous materials. Our goal is to provide our clients with the information and education to see the benefits in recycling, from both an environmental and business perspective, and to provide them a seamless way to incorporate recycling into their lamp replenishment programs."

We would like to thank our clients for being so progressive in their commitment to doing what's right by including lighting and electronics waste recycling in their corporate social responsibility programs."
