In 2012, the Florida DEP developed the Recycling Recognition Program. All of the organics that customers send for processing at Harvest Power count as recycling in Florida (and at our other facilities!).
The DEP will recognize outstanding recycling efforts of various entities that are leading the way to Florida’s recycling goal of 75% by 2020. The DEP will recognize organizations whose recycling efforts in 2012 or 2013 have taken them to a recycling rate of 40% or more — the target in the DEP’s trajectory to 75% in 2020.
In 2014, the target goes up to 50% so it will take at least a 50% recycling rate to be recognized for outstanding recycling efforts. Besides receiving a Recycling Recognition certificate, highlights for recipient organizations will be listed on the Recycling Recognition webpage (see highlights for recipients who have been recognized to date).
