Recycling Leadership Awards

We all know people, organizations, and companies that deserve recognition for their outstanding efforts to advance recycling, composting, reuse and waste reduction initiatives in New York State - as well as innovative waste reduction projects and education campaigns.  We hope you will take the time to put these achievements into words. Nominees do not have to be a NYSAR3 member; however, the applications will be reviewed by NYSAR3's Awards Committee. Not all categories may be awarded, and categories may also be changed, at the discretion of the Awards Committee.

 

Recycling Leadership Awards include:

  • Lifetime Achievement (An individual whose significant contributions to waste prevention, reuse, recycling, and/or composting that merit recognition onver the span of a career - or that are deserving of special attention and do not fall into one of the other categories.)
  • Citizen (An individual whose actions or creative solutions have significantly reduced solid waste or have furthered waste prevention, reuse, recycling, and/or composting.)
  • Public Sector (Individual whose job related actions or creative solutions have furthered waste prevention, reuse, recycling, and/or composting.)
  • Private Sector (Individual, team, or company, whose actions and creative solutions have furthered waste prevention, reuse, recycling, and/or composting.) 
  • College, University, or Other Educational Institution (whose actions have significantly reduced solid waste or have furthered waste prevention, reuse, recycling, and/or composting.)
  • Innovation Awards (An innovative project or public education campaign that has resulted in significant waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and/or composting)

The awards will be presented at the 29th Annual Recycling Conference & Trade Show on November 8, 2018 in Cooperstown.  We'll see you there!
