ASTSWMO Lifetime Achievement Award

As the policy states, ASTSWMO will recognize an outstanding individual who has worked in State or Territorial (State) government in the areas of waste and materials management, environmentally sustainable practices, and environmental restoration. The purpose of the award is two-fold: to recognize an outstanding individual for effort and service to the States, and advancement of our programs; and to promote the overall efforts of all State employees dedicated to the protection of public health, safety and the environment and the improvement of social-economic conditions related to waste management and contaminated site clean-ups. If a recipient is selected, they would be honored during the October 2017 Annual Meeting.
Nominations for the 2017 award are due to Dania Rodriguez, ASTSWMO Executive Director via email or mail by June 23, 2017.
