Have you been busy shedding paper weight? Do you know someone who’s lost pounds of plastic, aluminum and glass? Is your business slimming down sustainably? Rubicon Global – a leader in providing waste, recycling, and smart city solutions to businesses and governments – is on the hunt for the leaders who are shaping up their organization’s sustainability plans by slimming down on waste.

More and more companies and cities across the U.S. are focusing on reducing waste and achieving a more circular economy, and we want to recognize all the sweat equity that goes into building and sustaining a strong recycling and waste reduction program.

“We continue to be inspired by companies that are taking measurable steps to solving waste reduction challenges with circular economy best practices, like the RUBICONMethod, which gives companies a step by step guide to achieving successful recycling and waste reduction,” said David Rachelson, VP of Sustainability for Rubicon Global.

The Waste Fit Champions will embody: Performance: Overall sustainability fitness & proven improvements.

Tell us how many facilities have achieved zero waste to landfill as a result of the nominee’s leadership.

The submission process for Waste Fit Champions will begin on August 15 and continue through September 30.

Our judging panel will assess all entries and notify the 2018 Waste Fit Champions on Friday, October 5th, to invite them to attend New Metrics ’18, where the 2018 Waste Fit Champions will be publicly unveiled.
