June Brown and the Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP)

June Brown from OHL USA helped the company receive the highest recognition for recycling in California at the WRAP 2011 awards. June Brown took OHL and its five facilities in Southern California to a new high by earning this award for their efforts at keeping recyclable material out of the landfills. June partnered with California Recyclers in her Waste Reduction Efforts to exceed OHL’s goals in 2011. OHL Distribution in Ontario, Fontana, Rancho Cucamonga, and Riverside went from 200 tons to 800 tons of recycled materials a year.
Note: OHL was acquired by GEODIS in 2015.
