Nominations open for Saskatchewan Waste Minimization Awards
The Saskatchewan Waste Minimization Awards recognize excellence in waste reduction in Saskatchewan and aim to highlight success stories for others to consider adopting. Nominations will close February 5th, 2021.
Nominations must include a two-page summary highlighting the amount of waste diverted, leadership, innovation, and the impact on the environment and the economy. The same organization may be nominated in more than one year, but multiple awards will not be given for the same programs and activities.
Judging will follow the hierarchy of the 3Rs: first priority will be given to waste reduction at the source, including composting; then to reuse; and finally to recycling. Criteria for the awards include environmental impacts, innovation and progressiveness, leadership, track record, and an overall environmental commitment.
The award categories include:
- Lifetime achievement
- Youth/school/youth service organization
- Small business
- Non-profit organization
- Municipality (<5,000)
- Municipality (>5,000)
- Festival or event
