MI Windows and Doors Receives Recognition from the City of CarrolltonDecember 13th, 2013 | Category: Industry News
MI Windows and Doors (MIWD), formerly General Aluminum, was recently recognized by the City of Carrollton Environmental Services Department at an awards ceremony honoring 12 companies for their commitment to and compliance with the environmental requirements set by the Industrial Pretreatment Program. MIWD has been recognized for the past nine years.
“We are very proud to have kept our standards at a high performance level,” says Armando Flores, safety supervisor of MIWD in Carrollton, Texas. “This achievement is the result of a lot of hard work, and we will continue to be committed to environmental excellence.”
The Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP) is an active partnership between the private (industrial, residential) and public (city, state, federal government, treatment plant) sectors. The goal for the program is to manage industrial pollutants to ensure that no interference, pass-through, damage to the treatment plant, or injury to personnel occurs. The IPP complies with the Federal Clean Water Act by controlling potential pollution and industrial discharge in the city. Wastewater from new and existing facilities is continuously evaluated and water sampling and comprehensive facility inspections allow for monitoring of permitted industries.
