New categories for National Recycling Awards 2012

New titles are up for grabs in the 2012 National Recycling Awards

The awards’ new categories reflect the significant progress made by the recycling and waste management industry in moving recycling from a marginal issue into the mainstream.

The National Recycling Awards recognise excellence in all parts of the waste hierarchy and in all sections of the industry, with awards ranging from ‘waste minimisation’ to ‘best recycled product’.

To win, entrants must demonstrate effective strategy, tangible improvement, innovative and creative solutions, and a strong business case.

The awards are open to all involved in recycling and waste management, from local authorities, to waste producers, waste management companies, manufacturers and energy producers.

Small businesses have a vital role to play, so, for the first time, there are categories to recognise their achievements and contributions.
