NORMAN — Recycle Moore honored

Keep Oklahoma Beautiful recognized Recycle Moore with the top honor at the annual Environmental Excellence Awards recently. The “Take Us To Your Litter” campaign received the Outstanding Achievement Award from among all 2012 entries, as well as the Environmental Excellence Award for Government Programs with population greater than 30,000.

The campaign, produced by Trifecta Communications, encourages residents to bring recyclables to the Moore Recycle facility to help visitors from another planet. These out-of-this-world visitors—called Mooretians—need the materials to fuel their ship and return home safely. The recognition from KOB is the latest in a long line of accolades and achievements received by the innovative campaign.
