Enviro-Depot™ of the Year

Recognizing stand-out depots across the province.

Celebrating Enviro-Depots

These annual awards celebrate Enviro-Depots across Nova Scotia that go above and beyond in customer service and employee relations, engage and support their community, and participate in Divert NS depot initiatives. The awards are presented in two categories: Large Enviro-Depot™ of the Year and Small Enviro-Depot™ of the Year.

Large Enviro-Depot™ of the Year: Greenwood Recycling Centre

Large Enviro-Depot™ of the Year is awarded to Greenwood Recycling Centre, a family-owned drop off centre that has been serving their community since 1997. On top of recycling beverage containers, they also accept used clothing, electronics, batteries, and more.

It is clear from the testaments of so many community members and staff that Greenwood Recycling Centre is passionate about their customers and waste reduction, being described as “top notch,” by one of their nominators.

Small Enviro-Depot™ of the Year: Queens Enviro Center

Queens Enviro Center has been awarded Small Enviro-Depot™ of the Year for their phenomenal customer service, immaculate depot, and community efforts. 

Multiple nominations state that staff members, including depot owner Shelley Zinck, truly “go above and beyond.” In addition to their friendly and knowledgeable staff, Queens Enviro Center takes pride in the cleanliness of their facility. “It is so clean,” another nominator stated. “I have never seen a more well-organized Enviro-Depot™.”
