The Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) invites people to join in recognizing and celebrating Ontario’s waste reduction leaders by nominating people and organizations that have made a difference in the past year.

Says the RCO: “Never before has environmental leadership been more important. Have you, or someone you know raised the bar on waste reduction standards and practices? Nomination categories represent ‘for profit’, and ‘not for profit’ organizations, artistic communities and local government.”

All the tools needed for nomination are available on the RCO website:

Faithful to our mandate, the RCO is encouraging less use of paper by better facilitating and expanding our e-application services.

All required forms have been provided in an easy to use format that can be saved from the web and completed electronically. E- registration ensures that you are logged in as an applicant.
