Mayor’s Recycling Awards
11/17/2010

Mayor Ashley Swearengin will present the sixth annual Mayor’s Business Recycling Awards to eight winners during Thursday’s City Council meeting at 8:30 a.m.

The Mayor’s Business Recycling Awards were created to publicly recognize commercial businesses in the City of Fresno that actively support recycling in the workplace. Winners of the Mayor’s Business Recycling Awards must achieve a minimum of 75% waste diversion, while Zero Waste winners must divert at least 92% of their company’s waste.

“The City of Fresno is making huge strides in reducing the amount of waste we send to the landfill and these businesses are playing a large role in that success,” Mayor Swearengin said. “In addition to sustaining our environment, these companies recognize that recycling helps reduce costs and promotes business efficiency.”

The following companies will receive the Mayor’s Recycling Award on Thursday for their contributions to the City’s effort to achieve 75% waste diversion:
