MOLINE -- The Keep Moline Beautiful Commission wants to recognize those involved in recycling efforts who go above and beyond.

The commission is seeking nominations for Recycling Super Heroes in three categories: individual, family and organization/company. Those who submit names for consideration are asked to describe the nominee's commitment to recycling and why it's believed they should receive the Recycle Super Hero Award.

The nomination deadline is Oct. 31. The winners will be recognized by the Moline City Council in November.

To submit a nomination, go to keepmolinebeautiful.org or contact Rodd Schick at (309) 524-2410 or rschick@moline.il.us.

It is the third year for the annual awards.
