Recycling Services’s Recycling Services team, in partnership with Carlsberg UK, has been awarded silver in the recent Zero Waste Awards at the Landmark hotel in London. The award was given for its continuous improvement programme, which has seen a significant increase in recycling at Carlsberg UK and a reduction in waste going to landfill.
Recycling Services Take Home A Silver Award For Zero Waste
Working as a partnership over the course of five years, Recycling Services and Carlsberg UK have taken the waste management at both the Northampton brewery and the regional distribution centres a long way towards a more sustainable operation.
The Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management are designed to recognise and reward the work that local authorities, third sector organisations and businesses in the UK are doing in recycling and waste management.
Claire Smith, General Manager of Recycling Services
said “we are delighted to have won a silver award for our work in partnership with Carlsberg UK. This award recognises the hard work and commitment shown by both teams in striving for zero to landfill and ultimately zero waste.”
Through regular audits, staff awareness training, consistent signage and reviews, Recycling Services exceeded all the initial targets well ahead of schedule and continue to work with Carlsberg UK on further aspects of the programme.
Matt Winterburn, Head of Safety for the Health & Environment department at Carlsberg UK added, “we’re proud to be recognised as a leader within our industry for the work we do to protect the environment. We’re working smarter and bringing our people with us on the journey through education and recognition. We pride ourselves on being engaged with society and this award is another step towards our vision of being the best beer and beverage business in the UK.”
