an outstanding leader in the field of solid waste, or an outstanding
program. This is a way to bring exceptional programs to the
attention of members throughout the state.
The individual awarded (or one representative from the awarded
agency) will receive a plaque and a free registration to either
the March training course, or fall conference, their choice.
Nominees will be reviewed by the Executive Committee of the
NYSASWM board, and the award will take place at the fall conference.
