Gibsons Recycling Depot has been named one of the top 10 best small businesses in the province as part of the Small Business BC Successful You Awards contest (SYA).
Gibsons Recycling is competing for two awards: best community impact award, which recognizes businesses that demonstrate a positive impact in the community in which they operate and have taken positive action to invest in that community, and the best green business award, for a company that shows an outstanding commitment to energy and sustainability through leadership, green practices and conservation.
Throughout the last two months the company gained enough on-line votes to be named a top 10 finalist in both award categories.
The SYA contest recognizes the contributions outstanding B.C. entrepreneurs make in six award categories. This yearís finalists come from diverse sectors such as technology, hospitality, tourism and health care. More than 25 communities in B.C. are represented.
The top 10 will go on to submit an application, which judges will use to decide the top five finalists from each category, announced on Jan. 30.
The winners will be announced on Feb. 28 in Vancouver at the SYA ceremony. More information on the finalists can be found at www.successfulyou.ca.†
