Local authorities in the UK are setting a faster pace in recycling despite budgetary pressures and the challenge of the world economy. A number of authorities have moved beyond 50% and many who face inner city challenges are also making strong progress. Add to this the trailblazing efforts of many large companies and work by smaller firms as well to show the better use of resources, and all parts of the UK can be seen to be growing their work in recycling and sustainable waste management.

The Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management are brought to you by the driving publication of the industry, letsrecycle.com and are renowned for delivering true value and recognition to leaders of innovation in the sector.

Entry to the 2014 Awards is now closed. There was a fantastic response to this year's Awards - with entries up by 44% in comparison to 2013. The extremely high standard is a fantastic testament to the hard work and dedication of organisations working in the waste and recycling sector.

Winners will be announced at the lavish Awards ceremony on 1 May 2014 at the five star Landmark Hotel in London, with all finalists receiving two free tickets to this event - we wish them the best of luck!

The ceremony will be hosted by award-winning journalist and author George Alagiah OBE. Having joined the BBC in 1986, he became one of the Corporation’s leading foreign correspondents, recognised throughout the industry for his reporting on some of the most significant events of the last decade. George Alagiah currently presents the Six O'clock News - Britain's most watched news programme - and World News Today for the BBC's global channel.
