The City of Moore was presented two top honors from the Keep Oklahoma Beautiful program at the 2012 Environmental Excellence Awards held on November 1, 2012.
Keep Oklahoma Beautiful presented Moore leaders with the award for Government Programs in cities or counties over 30,000. The evening ended with the Recycle Moore "Take us to your Litter" campaign taking home the "Best of the Best" Award.
The "Take us to your Litter" campaign was started in 2011 to coincide with the opening of the city's renovated drop off recycling center. The center began basic operations in February 2010 and in November 2011 the center opened it new offices and drive thru services to citizens.
"The center and its new services provided the perfect opportunity for an 'Out of this World' marketing campaign to help us educate our citizens about the benefits of recycling," stated City Manager Steve Eddy.
