Green Star hands out 3 awards

by The Associated Press

A nonprofit environmental group has recognized three Alaska businesses for recycling, reducing waste, preventing pollution and increasing energy efficiency.

Green Star presented Green Star Awards to Alaska Interstate Construction, the Alaska Wilderness Recreation & Tourism Association/Alaska Institute for Sustainable Recreation & Tourism, and Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority/Alaska Energy Authority.

AIDEA/AEA also received an air quality award. Programs at the agency included updating lighting fixtures and windows and installing motion sensors for lighting.

Alaska Interstate Construction recycles fluorescent lamps, lead-acid batteries, used oil, antifreeze, aerosol cans and pallets. It also recycles more common materials like plastic bottles, aluminum cans, cardboard, toner cartridges and office paper.

Tourism organization AWRTA/AISTR recycles in its offices as well as at its annual eco-tourism conference.
