Total Reuse has been recognised as the best waste prevention company within the public and third sector at the prestigious National Recycling Awards 2016.
The National Recycling Awards reward excellence across the industry and address recycling, reuse and waste reduction and are judged by peers from across the industry.
To win, entrants must demonstrate effective strategy, tangible improvement, innovative and creative solutions, and a strong business case. It’s as much about the bottom line as the environment. With 21 categories and the Editor’s Award, the awards covered every aspect of waste management and recycling.
The 2016 winners were revealed on 6 July at the prestigious London Hilton, Park Lane, where the industry came together to celebrate the sector’s achievements.
Robin Latchem, editor of Materials Recycling World, said: “The referendum result may have created all sort of uncertainty but one thing’s for sure: the very best our industry has to offer was celebrated at the Hilton on Park Lane. The need to be smart with the resources we use is becoming understood across the wider economy and this has been reflected in the companies, organisations and individuals vying to win an NRA trophy.”
When it came to announcing the winner of the Waste Prevention Award within the public and third sector there were six initiatives eagerly awaiting the result.
