5th Annual Zero Waste Awards

Posted 10/9/2015

 

NOMINATIONS FOR THE ZERO WASTE AWARDS ARE OPEN!

Are you part of a company that cares about waste reduction!?!?  If so, please nominate your business/organization for the Zero Waste Awards.  Nominations are due October 29th!  

Which award suites your organization best???

 Zero Waste or Pretty Darn Close: Your organization or business has achieved a 90% or more diversion rate. Please provide clear documentation.

 Zero to Zero: Your organization or business has made the most progress over the last year in reducing waste. For example, if you had no recycling program in place and have since started an exemplary recycling program, this award could be for you. Provide us the details about your new program or project and what you have achieved. (We don’t expect you to be at Zero Waste but moving in that direction.)

Innovative Path to Zero: The organization or business which is actively moving towards zero waste, and has taken an innovative approach in repurposing materials, or has uncovered unique end-users for a particular waste stream.
