PORTLAND — ecomaine, southern Maine’s leader in single-sort recycling and Waste-To-Energy (WTE) operations, is seeking nominations for the 2014 ecomaine eco-Excellence Awards, honoring individuals, organizations and business who demonstrated a strong commitment to environmental sustainability during 2013.

“With the eco-Excellence Awards, we are looking to recognize champions of sustainability, innovators in either the public or private sector who are committed to improving environmental sustainability in the communities where they live and work,” ecomaine Board of Directors Chairperson Mike McGovern said.

Any effort or activity undertaken in support of environmental sustainability is eligible for nomination, regardless of size or scope, and nominations can be made by either individuals or organizations. Nominees, however, must live, work or be located in the municipality for which the award will be given, and that municipality must be one of ecomaine’s 48 member communities.

The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m., Jan. 24

Nominees will be judged on their activity’s overall effectiveness, ability to increase awareness of green issues, community impact and ease of replication.

Nomination forms can be obtained by download from the ecomaine website at ecomaine.org.
