You’ve seen our #RecyclingHeroes, now it’s your chance to nominate your own! If you know an individual or an organization/community that is setting an example with their recycling initiatives, nominate them as a #RecyclingHero and they could win $1,000 towards supporting their recycling and environmental initiatives. Or you could even nominate yourself! 

We want to celebrate the world’s unsung or local #RecyclingHeroes, from children, schools, teachers and professionals to businesses and communities, and everyone in-between. We want to hear from people across the planet about what or who has inspired them with their recycling efforts!  

Once you have nominated your #RecyclingHeroes, the Global Recycling Foundation team will recognize the top 100 #RecyclingHeroes and ten winners will be chosen from across the world. The ten winners will jointly represent the following regions: North America, Central & South America, Europe, Africa and Australasia. Each of the ten winners will receive a $1,000 prize to contribute to their recycling initiative, and the Foundation will promote their work to audiences across the world. They will be announced on Global Recycling Day itself – 18th March 2020.
