The Regional Municipality of Durham, Ontario’s Works Department was once again recognized internationally for its waste management practices, when it was announced as an award winner from the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) for the fourth year in a row.
“To be recognized by SWANA four years in a row is a huge honor,” said Cliff Curtis, Commissioner of Works. “This is a tribute to the programs we have in place to increase diversion in our communities, and the co-operation of our residents who ensure the success of these programs.”
The 2010 Marketing Gold Excellence Award was presented for the Region’s Green Bin Education and Compliance Program. The Region’s Agricultural Bale Wrap Recycling Program earned it the 2010 Special Waste Management Gold Excellence Award.
