Illinois (I-Newswire) September 13, 2012 - Karrie Gibson, President and CEO of Vintage Tech Recyclers has been awarded the 2012 Rosie Award, which recognizes powerful and influential women in the recycling industry.
This was the first year that the Rosie Award, named in honor of Rosie the Riveter, was issued.

President Karrie Gibson created Vintage Tech from her basement as a stay-at-home mom in 2005. In just a few years, she has expanded the business to three major recycling plants in Romeoville, Ill., Plainfield, Ill., and Riverside, Mo. In addition, she has established multiple business partnerships with Habitat for Humanity to provide permanent electronics recycling drop boxes throughout the Midwest.

The company’s practices reflect Gibson’s personal values of social responsibility and high ethical standards. By offering responsible electronic recycling services to businesses, schools, and consumers, Vintage Tech helps prevent the environmental damage caused by irresponsibly discarded electronics.
The Rosie Award was one of several national distinctions that Vintage Tech has received in the past year. Accompanying it are Vintage Tech’s Better Business Bureau Torch Award, The Naperville Chambers Small Business of the Year Award, Featured in Forbes Magazine for its 100 Most Powerful Women Issue, its e-Stewards certification, and Gibson’s NAPW Professional Woman of the Year recognition.
