On September 24, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) employee Sue Hunt was awarded the Environmental Champion Award at the USGS' 2002 Western Region Awards Ceremony in Menlo Park, CA. Granted by the USGS Safety and Environmental Program, the award recognizes Sue's leadership in recycling efforts at the USGS' Menlo Park campus.

Sue could not be present to receive her award, but the audience applauded warmly as Western Regional Director Doug Buffington read the following summary of her citation:

Sue is recognized for her nomination for the 2001 White House Closing the Circle Award. She personally developed and maintains the USGS "Supply Exchange" program in Menlo Park, allowing employees to drop off and pick up unwanted but still-usable supplies. This program is now an essential part of the campus culture, saving not only landfill space and trash-collection fees, but also reducing new procurement costs and conserving government resources. Sue has ensured that items no longer in demand by USGS are made available to local schools and nonprofit organizations, saving scarce educational funds and generating immeasurable goodwill. Through her efforts, this program serves as a model for the reuse and recycling of resources.
