Certified Nerds Awarded for Environmental Responsibility

Certified Nerds announced today that they have been named as the 2014 Tallmadge Chamber of Commerce Environmental Award winner.  Each year this award recognizes one chamber business organization who demonstrates commitment to environmentally sound practices.

Internally, Certified Nerds strives for energy efficiency, minimal paper usage and routine recycling efforts. As a tech company, the biggest environmental concern Certified Nerds faces on a daily basis is electronic waste (e-waste). Internally, team members are very aware of this topic and practice proper disposal habits as well as enjoy recycling parts for practical and creative use. While their team is very aware of e-waste concerns and practices, they noticed the general public is not.

Certified Nerds took it upon itself to address this lack of e-waste awareness and now conducts annual and ongoing drives around the topic. One example of this is when every April, Certified Nerds opens their doors and accepts e-waste for free. They also conduct two ongoing drives. Year round all are welcome to drop off empty ink and toner cartridges and old cell phones. The ink cartridges are then donated to help local homeless pets through Paws & Prayers Pet Rescue and the cell phones are donated to the Hope & Healing Survivor Resource Center to assist local victims of domestic abuse.

“We are honored as well as surprised to receive this award.  Having only been a part of the Tallmadge Chamber for a short time, but already being recognized for our drives and efforts in up-cycling E-waste, is a testament of how the chamber works as a family.  Thank you all for this recognition!” – Kyle O’Brien, Certified Nerds District Manager

To commemorate the company’s achievement, Certified Nerds received a certificate and recognition at an awards ceremony held on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at the Tallmadge Community Center.
