TerraCycle Recognized by U.S. Chamber of Commerce with 2017 Green/Sustainable Business Achievement Award


    TRENTON, N.J.,October 9, 2017 – TerraCycle, a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle waste, has been recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as the recipient of the 2017 Green/Sustainable Business Achievement Award, during the “Dream Big Small Business of the Year Celebration” held at the Small Business Summit in Washington, D.C. The annual awards ceremony celebrates the achievements of small businesses and honors their contributions to America’s economic growth.
    The Green/Sustainable Business Achievement Award recognizes a small business that has achieved excellence in the creation and implementation of sustainable business practices, including waste and recycling programs, water stewardship, efficiency in building environment, or any other significant effort designed to limit the way a business impacts the environment.
    “It is an honor to be recognized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for this prestigious award,” said Tom Szaky, TerraCycle CEO. “Our mission is to eliminate the idea of waste, and to have our efforts be acknowledged by these respected organizations is both humbling and rewarding.”
    Award winners were selected by a panel of judges from eighteen finalists in consideration for each of the five Business Achievement Awards and the one Dream Big Small Business of the Year Award
    “Small business owners are the backbone of our nation, exemplifying the American Dream by working hard, taking risks, and helping strengthen their communities and local economies,” said U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue. “The Dream Big Award winners have gone above and beyond to embrace innovation and entrepreneurship, and we are proud to recognize these tremendous small businesses for all of their achievements.”
