Tri-County Environmental Leadership Award
Mid-Michigan residents, businesses, governments, public institutions and non-profit organizations all have one thing in common, they produce waste. What is uncommon about this common activity, however, are the extraordinary measures some have taken to reduce the amount of waste they generate and dispose of into landfills. To recognize and support these exemplary behaviors in Mid-Michigan, local recycling coordinators have established this regional awards program.
The Tri-County Environmental Leadership Award (TCELA) is sponsored by a committee of local Waste Reduction professionals. The mission of TCELA is to publicly acknowledge residents, businesses, governments, educational institutions and non-profit organizations in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton Counties that have exemplary waste reduction and recycling practices and encourage others in the community to increase their efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle.
The TCELA program began in 2002 by recycling professionals in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton Counties in an effort to recognize those who go above and beyond and to help promote recycling and waste reduction to the community at large.
The 2013 Tri-County Environmental Leadership Award (TCELA) is sponsored by the following organizations:

Lansing Board of Water and Light
