To: "Public and non-profit recycling market developers" <jtrnet@lists.epa.gov>

      Do you or your states or localities know of shopping centers who
are leaders in waste prevention or in recycling?  Who have hosted
one-time events related to recycling, such as electronics take-back
events?  Who have "cutting edge" landscaping? Who reuse or recycle their
C&D waste from renovation?  They, or their retail partners, may want to
send in an application for an America's Marketplace Recycles! award from
the International Council of Shopping Centers--this award program has
been developed in conjunction with EPA.

      Award applications are due September 1, 2006.  This year, they are
open internationally as well as domestically.  The following categories
are available for both large and small shopping centers or retailers.

      o New Recycling Program Award
      o Expansion of an Existing Recycling Program Award
      o Outstanding Retailer Award
      o Outstanding Shopping Center Owner/Developer Award
      o Public Awareness Program Award
      o Community Partnership Award
      o Innovative Recycling Program Award

      In addition, the judging panel will present a special award to the
most outstanding nominee within these seven categories:  the ICSC
"Recycler of the Year".

      For more information and copies of the award applications, check
out ICSC's website at http://www.icsc.org/government/index.php
