Wastecycle loves East Midlands’ recycling efforts

Ten East Midlands companies’ love of recycling has been rewarded – just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Four companies in Nottinghamshire and six in Leicestershire have made significant efforts to increase the amount of waste they recycle, resulting in recognition from resource management and recycling company Wastecycle, which has presented them with a Love Recycling Award.

The Nottinghamshire companies receiving awards were Nottingham Trent University, J Tomlinson in Beeston, CDA in Langar, and 2 Sisters Laboratory and Luxfer Gas Cylinders in Colwick.

In Leicestershire, where Wastecycle operates, the winners were Loughborough University, Cressall Resisters, Ashe Construction, the National Space Centre, Wates and Office Depot.

Wastecycle, which processes over 500,000 tonnes of waste at its Leicester and Nottingham facilities every year, asked its account managers to nominate companies and individuals who had gone the extra mile to introduce systems and processes that reduced their firm’s impact on the environment or increased the amount of materials which were recycled through innovative methods.

Paul Clements, Wastecycle’s commercial director, said: “We wanted to highlight and celebrate the fantastic results that Wastecycle and its customers have achieved in reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill, the reduction in the miles our collection vehicles travel, and the increased recycling productivity we’ve managed to achieve through working in partnership. By introducing the Love Recycling Awards, we’ve been able to say thank you to our customers and the people within those organisations that have played a significant role in reducing waste, increasing the amount of waste that has been recycled and diverting so much material from landfill”.
