Tumalo Community School and UDI Corp. were among the winners of the Bend Garbage & Recycling and High Country Disposal “Recycler of the Year” award for 2006 efforts. Nominated by recycling route drivers from each garbage company, awarded businesses and individuals are recognized for their outstanding recycling.
The Riverhouse Convention Center and Kirby Nagelhout Construction were nominated, in part, for their certification with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
The program provides a roadmap for measuring the success for every building type and phase of a building lifecycle.
