No Time to Waste for Awards

The 2015 recycling 'Oscars' for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management are open for a deadline of next March

 

Celebrating the creativity, progress and dedication of those working to keep resources to the fore, the Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management are there to value leadership and best practice from all aspects of the sustainable resource management arena.

Industry, local authorities and community groups will be competing for the awards which recognise individual success stories, team efforts and original approaches to sustainable resource management.

Now in its twelfth year, the Awards organised by the Environment Media Group are free to enter. Last year’s new award – Circular Economy Success – was reportedly ‘a great hit’.

The deadline for entries is Thursday, 19 March 2015 and this year’s 11 categories are:

  • Retail recycling champion.
  • Circular economy success.
  • Waste management initiative in the commercial and public sector.
  • Design of a waste management facility, sponsored by the Environmental Services Association.
  • Collection crew of the year.
  • The best community recycling initiative.
  • Recycling business of the year, sponsored by Ceris Burns International.
  • Civic amenity site of the year, sponsored by REPIC.
  • The best local authority recycling initiative.
  • Local authority recycling champion, sponsored by Biffa.
  • Zero waste platinum award, sponsored by SAICA Natur and Wastecare.

 

The awards ceremony will be on Thursday, 14 May 2015 at the Landmark Hotel in London.
