Annual Awards Program

Do you have, or know of, a facility, project, program, associate, or employee that you feel deserves recognition? Have you been wondering how to foster that recognition? The Iowa Society of Solid Waste Operations has an awards program to help you do just that.

The ISOSWO Awards Program recognizes premier facilities, projects, programs, and individuals in the Iowa solid waste management industry with some well-deserved accolades.

2020 Nomination Process

The award nomination process is easy, simply complete the attached forms and return them to the Awards Committee Chairperson, Bill Rowland by Friday, July 31, 2020. The ISOSWO Awards Committee will review all nominations and make its recommendations to the ISOSWO Board of Directors at the Board’s August meeting. Those receiving awards will be notified by mid-August. The awards will be formally presented at the annual ISOSWO/IRA Fall Conference.

Award recipients will also have an opportunity to be selected for a professional video (shown below) produced highlighting the award-winning facility, project, or individual. The Awards Committee will consider all selected award applicants and recommend to the ISOSWO Board of Directors one that they believe stands above the rest and that can be effectively communicated through a video. The Awards Committee will announce the video production winner during the ISOSWO/IRA Fall Conference award ceremony. The Awards Committee will work with the selected award recipient to produce the video to be shown at the Spring ISOSWO Conference.
