The entry deadline for the National Recycling Awards is fast approaching - all entries have to be submitted by 24 February.
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’, and everything in between.
The recycling and waste management industry has made significant progress over the years, moving recycling from a marginal issue into the mainstream.
Households and businesses up and down the country and the government now recognise that recycling is crucial for the environment, for sustainability, and for the economy.
The latest waste review also underlines ministers’ commitment to supporting and boosting recycling, energy from waste and waste reduction.
To win, entrants for the awards must demonstrate effective strategy, tangible improvement, innovative and creative solutions, and a strong business case.
