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.


The award nomination process is easy, simply complete the attached forms and return them to the Awards Committee Chairperson in the spring. The ISOSWO Awards Committee will review all nominations and make its recommendations to the ISOSWO Board of Directors. With the Fall Conference canceled, more details will come regarding for announcing the winners.

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 work with the selected award recipient to produce the video to be shown at an upcoming ISOSWO Conference and shared on the ISOSWO YouTube channel.
