More than 600 people were brought together by the 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 that saw winners sorted from finalists for each category.
This year’s event also included a new afternoon learning session, which included live judging, panellist discussions, interviews and presentations by some of the industry’s key figures.
Andrea Lockerbie, associate editor of MRW said: “This year’s winners showcase the innovation and creative thinking being applied by those who are leading the way in the field of resource and waste management. There is a lot that others can learn from them, and we will be sharing their case studies in our next issue.”
This year’s Editor’s Award went to Simon Ellin, chief executive of the Recycling Association, in recognition of his work to drive up quality and to highlight the issues taht recyclers face – particularly within the mainstream media and other sectors.
