The Commission For a Clean County in Haywood County wants to recognize those individuals and organizations that made an outstanding commitment to a clean environment during the year.
Entries must be received by Dec. 10.
Several categories will be honored, includes litter control, recycling efforts, beautification projects to enrich the county and forms of environmental stewardship, such as “green” building, use of non-toxic fuels and new technology which is non-polluting and can improve the environment.
The Commission For a Clean County, formed in 2001, has raised awareness of the great advantages — financially, healthwise and aesthetically — of a clean county. The group sets a practical example by litter pickups along the roads during the spring, summer and autumn.
For an entry form, go to haywood.ces.ncsu.edu, or pick one up at the Waynesville, Canton or Maggie Valley library, Clyde Town Hall or the county manager’s office in the courthouse. Or call 828.456.3575.
The CCC awards luncheon will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at the Waynesville Golf Club, Spa and Resort.
