The West TN Regional Recycle Hub in Henderson was one of five West Tennessee entities awarded conservation achievement awards by the Tennessee Wildlife Federation in the 55th Annual Conservation Achievement Awards.
The hub was awarded as the Conservation Organization of the Year.
The West Tennessee Regional Recycle Hub, and its 11 spokes scattered throughout the region, is dedicated to promoting recycling and sustainability. Through waste reduction programs, litter prevention, and environmental education and outreach the Hub has significantly increased the availability for rural populations to recycle throughout the region. The Hub has provided essential waste and recycling equipment, introduced successful recycling cart programs, and organized volunteer campaigns.
The Hub also operates an observational classroom—the only one of its kind in the state—where students can see the recycling and waste process firsthand while learning about conservation initiatives.
In addition, the Hub partners with other like-minded organizations to prevent litter and clean trash along roadways, wetlands, and waterways to help beautify and clean their region.
The other West Tennessee award recipients and their honors are: Water Conservationist of the Year – David Blackwood of Humboldt, Conservation Communicator of the Year – Bill Dance of Collierville, Dan and Cherie Hammond Sharing the Harvest Award – Chad and SaDonna Cardwell of Medon and Hunter Education Instructor of the Year – Andrew Tweed of Memphis.
