WasteWise United

U.S. EPA honors partners.

What does Eastman Kodak have in common with the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation? Or Walt Disney World with Sandia National Laboratories? Each of them, along with 54 other organizations, were recognized at an awards ceremony in the nation’s capital for their extraordinary accomplishments in reducing waste.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WasteWise program unites more than 1,160 businesses, government agencies and institutions in an effort to reduce waste. This program is free, voluntary and fosters cooperation among people working to find practical methods to reduce municipal solid waste and improve financial performance.

Each year, the EPA formally recognizes those partners that achieve significant waste reduction results through their WasteWise programs at an awards ceremony, which was held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC, on November 14, 2001. Administrator Christie Whitman kicked off the ceremony and formally recognized the partners being honored. The 19 organizations named as Partners of the Year conducted exceptional waste prevention programs while also demonstrating excellence and innovation in recycling collection, buying or manufacturing recycled-content products, and internal and external promotion. WasteWise also honored 39 Program Champions that made waste reduction achievements.
