Potomac Incorporated Wins National
Aegis Award For Recycling Video
BETHESDA, MD – Potomac Incorporated has won a 2002 Aegis Award Winner’s Trophy for a business recycling video produced for the Montgomery County Division of Solid Waste Services. This is the third, and most prestigious, Aegis Award Potomac Incorporated has received.
The Aegis Awards are the video industry’s premier competition for peer recognition of outstanding video productions and non-network TV commercials. “Saving for the Future: Reducing Waste and Recycling in the Workplace”, was recognized for its outstanding production quality in the “Training/Education” category by a distinguished panel of judges representing industry professionals from around the country.
“We are honored to receive an Aegis Award, especially for something as important as business recycling,” said Keith Haller, President of Potomac Incorporated.
“Saving for the Future: Reducing Waste and Recycling in the Workplace” was produced by Heather Goethe and Brian Edwards to increase recycling awareness among businesses in Montgomery County. The 7 minute video was filmed in Montgomery County and featured several businesses in the area including Pepco, Axcelis Technologies and Montgomery General Hospital. It concentrated on the Montgomery County Division of Solid Waste Services and their SORRT program: Smart Organizations Reduce and Recycle Tons.
Last year, Potomac Incorporated received an Aegis Award for the recycling video, “You Live Here. Save it. Recycle.” And a second educational video aimed at elementary and middle school students entitled “Love Your Planet. Recycle.” was named a 2001 Aegis finalist.
