What is it? The Excellence Awards are a competitive program recognizing the work of outstanding programs and facilities in fourteen different practice areas of solid waste management across North America, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
Why should I apply? The Excellence Awards program is a unique opportunity to earn well-deserved recognition from your local community, as well as the broader solid waste industry, for your program or facility. Winners will be recognized and presented with awards at SWANA’s Annual Awards Banquet at WASTECON 2012 in the Washington DC area. Many past winners have proudly displayed these awards at their facilities, and used the recognition to gain support for their programs from the public and their local governments.
