Help CVSan Nominate 4R Star Employees For Awards!

Each year, Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) honors employees of 4R Star Businesses with awards for outstanding work implementing the 4R’s - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot - in the workplace. The hard work of these “star” employees assists CVSan’s 4R Star Businesses on their path to zero waste and supports CVSan’s zero waste goal!

This year, CVSan is asking for your help to nominate CVSan’s 4R Star Businesses or their employees who you think deserve to be recognized for practicing the 4Rs!

Go online and share your stories about stellar employees (or businesses), practicing the 4Rs. CVSan will read your stories to award several 4R Star Employees and recognize them with awards!

From August 26th - September 25th, submit your nomination in any of the following ways:

  • Comment on our social media posts about the 4R Star Employee Recognition @cvsan on Facebook or Twitter
  • Fill out the nomination form at
  • Send an email to

Each week, participants who submit a nomination will be entered into a raffle for a prize from CVSan. Be sure to give CVSan a “Like” on Facebook and follow @CVSan on Twitter to see prompts for submitting your nomination beginning August 26th.

CVSan will announce the selected 4R Star Employees in October! Winners will be recognized with an award and certificate from CVSan and will be featured in Castro Valley/Eden Area Chamber of Commerce’s newsletter. Winners must be an employee of a currently certified 4R Star Business. Businesses may certify as a 4R Star Business before the award distribution to maintain employee eligibility.

Join CVSan in applauding the outstanding efforts of 4R Star Businesses and their employees! Share stories about a business you think deserves praise @cvsan on Facebook or Twitter, or let us know at, or at
