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.
We are delighted to announce that award-winning journalist and author George Alagiah OBE will be hosting this year’s prestigious awards ceremony. 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.
Entries for the Awards for Excellence and Waste Management are now welcome - and if you are within the first 100 to submit an entry you have the chance of winning a FREE table of ten at the Awards luncheon.
