MADISON -- The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is accepting nominations for the 2018 Recycling Excellence Awards until Aug. 31.
Communities and organizations are eligible and encouraged to apply for recognition of recent recycling initiatives. The DNR offers the Recycling Excellence Awards not only in recognition of efforts made but also as a way of highlighting ideas with proven track records that communities might use to improve their recycling endeavors.
Awards are offered in four categories - overall program, projects and initiatives, innovation and special events. Communities and organizations of any size may self-nominate or submit an application on behalf of another program. Stories, photos, and other relevant information are welcome!
For more information about the categories, past awards, and a nomination form search the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov, for "Recycling Excellence Awards."
