Giulio Mazzone Distinguished Service Award

About Giulio Mazzone

Giulio Mazzone was a NASPO member, former NASPO President and the seventh recipient of the Distinguished Service Award. As the lightning rod behind NASPO’s recycling involvement, especially with paper and the ASTM, he cultivated a very good relationship between NASPO and the federal government. As important, if not more important, he was a good friend, quick to make new members feel welcome and part of the organization, urging them to get involved. He was responsible for many members’ decisions to jump into the thick of things. Renaming the award after Guilio lost his fight to cancer represented both NASPO’s attempt to hold on to a little piece of the “Giulio magic,” and a restatement of the high bar this award represents to NASPO members.
