Who do you think should deserves the “Recycler of the Year Award” this year?
NRRA is proud and honored to present the “Sami Izzo Recycler of the Year” Award. This award is given annually in remembrance of Sami Izzo who passed away on February 4, 2001.
Sami Izzo was a high energy and multi-talented individual who is best known for her contributions in the waste minimization and education fields. She also served with distinction on many volunteer boards and commissions throughout the Upper Valley of Vermont.
From 1991 to 2000, Sami was Program Director for the Greater Upper Valley Solid Waste Management District helping to create the Vermont HazWaste Network and the Upper Valley Compliance Officers Network. In 2000 Sami accepted the position of Recycling and Waste Minimization Coordinator at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center where she implemented a mercury reduction program, educated staff on waste management and assisted in the design of the building expansion program.
Notwithstanding the above contributions to the world of waste reduction and recycling, Sami will be most remembered for her quick wit, genuine smile, love of nature and outdoor activities, adoration of her children and uncompromising commitment to the environment.
