EPA Tidy Towns Special Award for Waste Prevention
In 2014, the Environmental Protection Agency is sponsoring a special competition: the EPA Tidy Towns Special Award for Waste Prevention.
NATIONAL FIRST PRIZE: €1,000
2 National Runner-Up Prizes: €500 each
This award is to recognise communities that have undertaken activities to prevent waste and use resources efficiently. When we talk about waste prevention, we’re not talking about recycling; we’re talking about not generating waste in the first place. This can be achieved by consuming less and using resources and materials efficiently.
