TCEQ, STAR seek award nominations

Monday, August 10, 2015

Numerous communities in the Capital Area Council of Governments’ 10-county region have strived to achieve excellent environmental stewardship, and CAPCOG wants to encourage its communities to apply for accolades from two state wide environmental organizations seeking award nominations through August and September.

The State of Texas Alliance for Recycling’s (STAR) 2015 Texas Environmental Leadership Awards recognize stewards of environmental change in Texas that develop and maintain programs involving recycling, composting, sustainable material management, public education and outreach, special event recycling and more. The deadline is 5 p.m. Aug. 28.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is offering awards in nine categories, such as education, pollution prevention, and innovative operations and management, for those that make inspiring efforts to preserve and protect the state’s environment. TCEQ will accept applications for its awards until Sept. 25.
