National Recycling Awards winners revealed

More than 600 people were brought together by MRW’s National Recycling Awards last night to celebrate the sector’s achievements.

The event, held at the London Hilton on Park Lane, marked the culmination of a tough judging process, with entries submitted from across the UK.

Finalists and industry figures also gathered earlier at the daytime conference. This included keynote speeches from the Welsh Government and Mary Creagh, chair of the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC). Creagh used the event to announce a new inquiry by MPs into WEEE.

Deposit return schemes and modern day slavery were also discussed, in addition to cybercrime and digitisation.

Attendees also had the opportunity to learn about various industry campaigns from their peers at live judging sessions held at the venue throughout the day.

Corin Williams, MRW editor, said: “Every year through the awards we discover and celebrate truly ground-breaking initiatives, technology and services. This year is no exception.

“There has been intense public scrutiny of our sector recently, and there is quite rightly a lot of concern about where our waste ends up.

“The MRW National Recycling Award 2019 winners show that our industry has the inspiration, expertise and enthusiasm to meet these challenges and lead from the front.”
