Last week, it was announced that the Florida Beverage Association’s (FBA) Capitol Recycling Program received the 2018 Sustainability Partnership Game Changer Award from the National Waste and Recycling Association.

The National Waste and Recycling Association honored winners in five categories for organizations that made substantial contributions to recycling through partnerships, public education and innovations in recycling. Those selected were determined by a panel of judges consisting of professionals in the waste and recycling industry, as well as leaders from technology and education organizations.

The Capitol Recycling Program, spearheaded by FBA’s executive director Liz DeWitt, placed bottle-shaped recycling bins throughout the state’s Capitol in Tallahassee. This program was part of a partnership with the Florida Recycling Partnership, Waste Management and Florida DEP.

Congratulations to the Florida Beverage Association on this well-deserved recognition and for leading the way on partnerships and programs that further the industry’s sustainability goals! Find out more about the National Waste and Recycling Association’s awardees here.
