The Heap

And the Oscar goes to ...

Okay, maybe it’s not an Oscar, but New Jersey’s Union County Utilities Authority (UCUA) was recently honored with a Silver MERCURY Award in the Public Awareness Video category for its educational video, “It’s Not Waste If It’s Energy.”

The slick video, viewable below, sings the praises of waste to energy (WTE) in general and the Union County, N.J. WTE plant in particular, highlighting the benefits of the technology and its status as a renewable resource.

The MERCURY Awards, established in 1987 by MerCOMM Inc., recognize outstanding achievements in professional communications. Winners were chosen from 290+ categories and classifications, honoring “creativity, determination, functionality, originality, and smart thinking.”
