The City of Modesto recognizes that local businesses and organizations play an integral part in the city’s overall waste reduction efforts. Each year we honor selected businesses and organizations for their efforts in finding ways to reduce waste and be resource efficient.
Meeting state mandates regarding waste reduction remains a priority for the City of Modesto. That’s why we invite you to apply for the City of Modesto’s Annual Business Recycling Awards, which will be based on your efforts of waste reduction and recycling for the prior calendar year. Who is eligible? All businesses and organizations within the city limits of Modesto.
Up to 15 winners will be selected, 5 each from the following categories:
Small Business - Under 20 Employees
Medium Business - 21 to 100 Employees
Large Business - Over 100 Employees
Applicants will be judged based on the following criteria:
New waste reduction and/or recycling programs developed in previous year
Enhancement of existing waste reduction and/or recycling programs in previous year
Volume of materials reduced and/or recycled in previous year
Level of community support, involvement and participation in previous year
This is your opportunity to get recognized for your great eco-efforts and Celebrate Green with us! Awards will be presented at a September City Council Meeting and a reception will be held in your honor the following day.
