Monroe, WA Canyon Creek Cabinet Company has been honored by the
state of Washington for its efforts in preventing environmental
pollution at its cabinet manufacturing facility.

The company, headquartered here, received a 1999 Washington
State Governor’s Award for “Outstanding Achievement in Pollution
Prevention” during a recent ceremony at the State Capitol in
Olympia.

“This is a truly prestigious award and one that we are very
proud to receive,” said Canyon Creek president Bill Weaver. Weaver
credited company officials Kent Boyer, Tim Shay and John Earl, as
well as AKZO/Nobel representative Les Sanders, for spearheading
Canyon Creek’s efforts at curbing pollution from hazardous
materials and waste when the company built its new factory in
Monroe about two years ago.

The company was honored for implementing an innovative
combination of equipment technology and a waterborne topcoat to
virtually eliminate hazardous air pollutants typically associated
with solvent-based cabinet finishing. The award was presented by
Gov. Gary Locke and Dept. of Ecology Director Tom Fitzsimmons.
