Sims Group UK has won one of nine major Commendations at this year’s Business Commitment to the Environment (BCE) Awards.
David Cameron presents Sims fridge recycling manager Paul Wake with the award
The award was for the group’s fridge recycling plant in Newport, for its ongoing work to reduce the overall environmental impact of the plant through improved operational efficiency.
Awards were presented by David Cameron at a ceremony in London earlier this month. Sims fridge recycling manager Paul Wake said: “Sims realise that it is not enough to just recycle, it is important to constantly improve how we recycle.”
Winner of the Process Premier award went to flat glass recycler Saint Gobain Glass, who was determined to overcome the perception that flat glass was too contaminated and expensive to recycle. And the Management Premier award went to Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK, the first car manufacturing plant in the UK to achieve zero waste to landfill.
The closing date for entry for next year’s BCE awards is October 6 2006. See www.bceawards.org.
