USPS is seeking nominations for the next round of Postmaster General Sustainability Excellence Awards.
The awards will honor facilities, groups and individuals who helped the Postal Service become more sustainable during the current fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30.
Nominations are sought in several categories: small facilities (1-49 employees), medium facilities (50-299 employees), large facilities (300 or more employees), and district-wide, area-wide and organization-wide initiatives.
“Being leaner, greener and faster goes hand in hand with our vision of being a sustainable organization,” said Chief Sustainability Officer Tom Day. “These awards are one way we recognize the efforts of our employees and demonstrate our commitment to sustainability.”
The most recent awards honored:
- Recycling efforts at facilities in Chicago; Clatskanie, OR; Detroit District and Sacramento District.
- The installation of energy efficient equipment at facilities in Albany, NY; Grand Forks; Rapid City, SD, and Teterboro, NJ.
- Equipment recycling in Salt Lake City.
- Paper-saving efforts in Network Operations.
Nominations are due Oct. 14.
