Northrop Grumman Corp.’s Electronic Systems sector has received the 2011 Outstanding Corporate Leadership Award from the Maryland Recycling Network for its recycling and waste reduction during the past year. In early 2009, Northrop Grumman’s Baltimore-area operations began using single-stream recycling, which allows paper, cans, plastics, glass and cardboard to be collected together in one container. This made it simpler for employees to decide to recycle, increasing their involvement. An employee engagement campaign was then introduced at its Baltimore, Annapolis, Sykesville and Elkridge campuses, which further encouraged employees to recycle.
