In 2002, ASTSWMO instituted the ASTSWMO Lifetime Achievement Award, to recognize an outstanding individual who has worked or is currently working in State government in the areas of solid and hazardous waste management, sustainability/materials management, underground storage tanks, or contaminated site clean-up.
The purpose of the award is to recognize work done on behalf of the States and in furtherance of ASTSWMO's mission to enhance and promote effective State and Territorial programs for waste and materials management, to encourage environmentally sustainable practices, and to affect relevant national waste and materials management policies.
The annual solicitation of nominations is posted on the ASTSWMO homepage each spring. The award is presented at the ASTSWMO Annual Meeting.
ASTSWMO's mission is To enhance and promote effective State and Territorial
