Village of Weston receives Recycling Excellent Award from the Wisconsin Department of Natural
Weston – The Village of Weston was recently awarded a 2012 Recycling Excellence Award from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The Recycling Excellence Award is given to a community with the most improved recycling rate over the previous year (2012 versus 2011). This new DNR pilot program recognized 50 local governments and the Ho-Chunk Nation for their superior recycling efforts in Wisconsin.
The agency’s “Recycling Excellence Awards” pilot focuses on towns, villages, cities, counties and tribes in the west and south central parts of the state, with the goal of encouraging and rewarding communities doing great recycling work while driving friendly competition to improve their programs.
The Wisconsin DNR handed out awards to 29 local governments in the south central part of the state, 21 in the west central area and one to the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin. The majority of the awards were based on 2012 annual reporting data.
A list of all the pilot program award recipients and details of each award can be viewed by visiting dnr.wi.gov and searching "Recycling Excellence Awards.
