A Colwick-based waste management company is urging local businesses, charities and public sector organisations that love recycling to enter their new awards scheme.
Wastecycle, who are based on Colwick Industrial Estate, came up with awards last year but entry was restricted to its customers. This year, Wastecycle’s management team want to widen the focus of the awards.
The Love Recycling Awards celebrate the efforts of organisations which have reduced their waste, reused materials destined for the bin or increased their recycling rates.
A spokesman for the firm said: “Last year’s awards were so well received that this time around we’ve decided to open them up to any company, charity or public sector organisation across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire that has done its part of safeguard the environment.”
To enter, all people have to do is email a 300-word entry to firstname.lastname@example.org outlining the problem they faced, the innovative solution they implemented and the results of their efforts in reducing waste, increasing recycling or the reuse of materials.
