[ARCHIVED] Garland Honored with Recycling Awards

EWS Green Award 360x250

The City of Garland was a triple honoree on Friday, Sept. 13, when the North Texas Corporate Recycling Association presented its gR3een Awards at the Dallas Arboretum.

Go Green Garland was recognized for its Earth Day event with the association’s Innovative Recycling Event award. The event included tours of the City’s recycling center, recycling demonstrations and education on green living. Also featured was a recycled art competition for elementary students to demonstrate and raise awareness of how to reuse items and help care for the planet.

The City’s Public and Media Relations Department landed the association’s Green Media award for marketing support for its partnership with Garland Environmental Waste Services to promote recycling and resource conservation. The department produced a “Reduce, Reuse, Recycling Calendar,” social media posts, Facebook Live videos and a “Know What to Throw” video series.

Environmental Waste Services intern Ximena Coronado, a Garland High School senior, was honored as Recycler of the Year. Her efforts helped the Garland Independent School District incorporate cans, plastic bottles and milk cartons into its recycling program. She is an artist who has crafted several environmentally themed pieces.
