Home > Summit > 2019 Texas Environmental Leadership Awards

The 2019 Texas Environmental Leadership Awards recognize true stewards of environmental change in Texas– individuals, communities, organizations, and businesses developing and maintaining programs involving recycling, composting, sustainable materials management, public education and outreach, special event recycling– and so much more! Awards are a great way to get commendation for the hard work that you and your staff do every day to advance recycling in Texas!

Award winners are honored at a special ceremony and dinner as part of the Texas Recycling Summit.
