OCWR Receives Three NACo Awards

OC Waste and Recycling (OCWR) received three Achievement Awards from the National Association of Counties (NACo). OCWR was recognized for their involvement in creating the Neighbor Support Portal, submitting an Organics Management Plan and aiding in the development of the OC Safety Application.

The Neighbor Support Portal allows residents to submit comments, questions and concerns regarding OCWR landfill sites and headquarters. The portal acts as a central location for OCWR employees to track, respond and store submissions. The program was developed by OCWR and OCIT.

Continually evolving legislation required OCWR to respond to California’s new regulation that no longer allows counties to accept residential processed green material or provide cities with diversion credit. OCWR’s Organics Management Plan – Developing a Regional Organics Program, was recognized for its approach and results since the program was implemented.

OC Safety Application, a site designed to be a one-stop-shop for all employee safety training, allows employees to keep track of mandatory, completed and uncompleted courses. The award was submitted by OCIT with OCWR acting as a sponsored customer.

The 2019 achievement award winners were announced May 6 and will be recognized in Nevada this summer.
