Traditionally, we would have gathered in person to recognize these outstanding efforts, but due to Covid-19, this was just not feasible. In lieu of tradition, the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste Staff created this special publication to highlight the stories and achievements of our 2020 award winners.
