The annual awards program has been redesigned to offer increased
opportunities for outstanding paper recycling efforts to be recognized.
Applicants in three categories – school, business and community – each have
four chances to win: programs will be judged on creativity, participation,
partnership, and volume collected. Winners receive a cash prize, an original
piece of framed artwork, and visibility in local and national media.
Best practices of winning recycling programs will be featured on
paperrecycles.org and in AF&PA outreach materials to inspire and encourage
others to take up, or increase, paper recycling. All efforts contribute to the
industry-wide goal to exceed 70 percent paper recovery for recycling by 2020.
Don't miss this opportunity to gain attention for your paper
