Program of the Year Awards

Resource Recycling is excited to announce our second annual “Program of the Year” awards!

The 2022 Program of the Year, sponsored by Re-TRAC Connect, will be awarded to two community recycling programs – one serving a jurisdiction of 150,000 residents or more, and a second serving less than 150,000 residents.

The aim is to highlight cities and counties that are taking innovative steps to recover more material, engage with residents on sustainability, demonstrate excellence in program measurement, and make critical progress in other ways. Read about the winners from 2021, Grand Rapids, Mich. and Olympia, Wash.

Applications for the awards are no longer being accepted. Thank you for your interest and please consider applying in 2023. Be sure to attend our free webinar announcing the 2022 winners (details below).

Join us for a free webinar on Wednesday, Aug. 3 to be the first to hear which cities are being honored this year. We’ll also engage in discussion with representatives from the winning communities to learn more about how they’ve advanced their materials recovery efforts!

The winners of the Program of the Year Awards will also be honored at the 2022 Resource Recycling Conference, being held in Austin, Texas, August 15-17.
