TULLAHOMA, Tenn. — Recycling has its rewards and for Ascend Federal Credit Union that translated to earning an environmental award from Cintas Document Management.

“Ascend is recycling roughly a ton-and-a-half of paper a week,” Cintas Operations Manger Mark Rose said. “That’s impressive. In past years, that would have gone straight to a landfill.”

According to Rose, Ascend’s recycling efforts have saved 1,258 trees, 28,120 gallons of oil and 518,000 gallons of water.
