Broadening Horizons has been formally recognized for the work the program has done to preserve the local environment. In 2006 and again in 2011, Broadening Horizons Recycling was given The Gander and Area Chamber of Commerce Environmental Award during the Joe and Clarice Goodyear Business Achievement Awards Gala.

The award is given to a local area business that has gone beyond environmental compliance and demonstrated a commitment to improved environmental performance of their business operations. The business would have also contributed to local environmental awareness and/or have developed partnerships with stakeholders to promote environmental stewardship.

On June 5, 2006, Broadening Horizons Recycling was honored again with a Provincial Environment Award in the Community Group or Organization category. The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Awards Program is a joint initiative of the Department of Environment and Conservation, NLWI and MMSB.
The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Awards Program honors our outstanding leaders in environment and conservation. The environmental awards represent a public acknowledgment of the initiative, dedication, and hard work that individuals, communities, schools and organizations have put into caring for our environment and the wise use of our natural heritage.

The environmental awards are presented to individuals and groups who make an exceptional effort to create a healthier environment and to help promote and encourage environmentally friendly practices. Award winners also receive a $1,000 honorarium from MMSB to be used to continue their environmental project or donated in their name to an environmental organization or cause. Awards are presented in seven categories.
