Having worked with the RCO Awards for the past 10 years and writing many of award nominations, we would like to notify you of significant changes within the Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) awards program:

The RCO Awards will now be replaced exclusively with 3R Certified Certification to reflect new realities and trends in the industry, as well as the new waste management legislation.

• 3RCertified is also aligning with BOMA BEST® 3.0 whereby properties that complete either certification will be recognised with specific credits by the other’s certification program.

• Properties who achieve 3RCertified status by October will be in the spotlight at the RCO’s gala celebrations during Waste Reduction Week in October.

 3RCertified™ is a national certification program for office buildings, retail stores and shopping centres, industrial facilities, hotels, restaurants, educational establishments, and hospitals. It reviews how organizations manage solid waste management and reduction practices. Participating organizations achieve certification levels based on established criteria and third-party evaluation.


How We Can Partner Together:
• We have specific experience in facilitating 3RCertified™ projects, having worked with Cadillac Fairview Corporation Ltd. and Menkes Property Management Services Ltd. to achieve Gold certification.

• We are recognised by the RCO as approved Waste Auditors to conduct waste audits that meet the 3RCertified requirements.

Please contact us for more details and discuss how we can help your property achieve 3RCertified certification.
