The McHenry County Department of Health and the McHenry County Solid Waste Advisory Committee are accepting nominations for the McHenry County Green Awards.
The awards recognize waste reduction, recycling and conservation efforts throughout the county. Entries will be considered based on their environmentally sound waste reduction or recycling efforts; innovation; and education or encouragement of participation, according to a news release.
Winners will be selected by the committee and recognized throughout the year.
Awards will be given in four categories – business; institution, such as a school, hospital or government; organization, such as a club or volunteer group; and individual.
Nomination forms are available at www.mcdh.info.
