The AF&PA Recycling Awards annual recognize outstanding paper recycling programs, since being established in 2006.

The annual awards program has been redesigned this year to offer increased opportunities for recognition of even more outstanding paper recycling efforts. Applicants in three categories – school, business and community – now have four chances to win in each category. Programs/entries will be judged on:

Volume – total amount of paper and paperboard collected

Creativity – unique and innovative ways that have been used to market the program, raise awareness and generate interest

Participation – unique and innovative ways successful programs increased participation and tonnage collected

Partnerships – innovative partnerships (community, business, non-profit organizations) used to promote increased recovery

Four winners in each category will receive a cash prize; an original piece of framed artwork; and bragging rights and visibility in local and national media for their recycling efforts.
