RICHLAND -- The City of Richland is accepting applications for the 2011 Green Recognition Awards through Friday, July 29.
The annual awards honor Richland businesses, organizations, groups, schools or individuals who make a notable effort to improve the environment through recycling and reusing, or reducing water, solid and/or chemical waste, electricity, wastewater or air pollution emissions.
Efforts to clean up or restore our environment, conserve natural resources or educate the public are also eligible.
The protection and conservation of our natural resources helps the environment and reduces maintenance costs for municipal utility operations.
