Alcoa is the inaugural winner of the LEAP award for recycling leadership given by the Southeast Recycling Development Council (SERDC), an organization dedicated to promoting sustainable recycling in the Southeast U.S. The award recognizes corporate leadership in the drive to increase recycling rates in the region.

“SERDC is pleased to recognize Alcoa’s longstanding commitment to recycling and materials management,” said Will Sagar, executive director of SERDC. “Alcoa has been proactive in supporting collection of materials, not only aluminum, but all recyclables. Alcoa’s responsible approach and investment in infrastructure has demonstrated leadership that serves as a model for the industry. We look forward to continuing our collaborative effort with Alcoa and others to promote sustainable recycling in 11 southeastern states.”
