The EIA program, Community Changemakers. will honor companies and individuals involved in the waste and recycling industry in the United States that are making notable impacts in the industry and their communities, serving as leaders and role models and driving innovation in waste management, recycling and environmental protection, the Washington-based association said in a news release.
“Every day, the waste and recycling industry provides important services to communities across the country,” said Sharon Kneiss, EIA president and CEO. “In so many instances, people in the industry have gone above and beyond the call of duty, whether by rendering aid in emergencies, acting as eyes and ears in neighborhoods or volunteering time and talents to make their communities better places. … We are launching Community Changemakers to give deserved attention to those community leaders and heroes.”
EIA will recognize the award recipients on the website, www.beginwiththebin.org, and on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. The winners also will get award certificates, and EIA will share the news with the recipient’s home media markets.
