On Friday, April 13, 2007, the Tri-County Waste Reduction Awards Program (WRAP) celebrated its fifth anniversary with an awards ceremony held at the Cadillac Club in Lansing.

Six local individuals and businesses were honored for their outstanding efforts to recycle and reduce their waste.

Fox 47 Meteorologist, Todd Klaassen was the emcee during the event and award-winning author and environmentalist Dave Dempsey presented an inspiring message to the 50 guests present at the ceremony.

The mission of WRAP is to publicly acknowledge residents, businesses, governments, educational institutions and non-profit organizations in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties that have exemplary waste reduction and recycling practices and encourage others in the community to increase their efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle.
