Holland Farms bakery and deli, 50 Oriskany Blvd. in Yorkville, has earned th RecyleOne Business Certification from the Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority in recognition of work to reduce waste and packaging.
The certification requires an on-site review from authority staff to verify that certain criteria have been achieved in solid waste management, recycling and energy reduction.

New energy-efficient freezers, oven, and steam proofer.
New paper to-go cups instead of plastic foam.
