Green – and Silver - glory for Waste King
In June, it was named as a Green Apple Award winner in the national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies. Late that month, the company’s managing director, Glenn Currie, received the award from Trevor Baylis at a ceremony at the University of Westminster.
Subsequently, Waste King is being considered to represent the UK in the European Business Awards for the Environment. It has already been invited to have its winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international reference work on environmental best practice.
Waste King has also been awarded the Silver Star by the National Recycling Stars Scheme. The award was made in recognition of the company’s commitment to increasing the amount of waste the company recycles and to improving the environmental awareness of their staff.
Waste King, in competition with many other organisations, was judged on its recycling achievements according to a range of criteria which are designed to assess not only an organisation’s percentage of waste recycled but also the overall commitment and engagement of its staff in implementing environmental initiatives.
Currie commented: “We’re delighted to receive recognition of our ‘green’ efforts in these two awards – but, of course, next year we’ll be aiming for a National Recycling Gold!”
Waste King’s recycling and waste collection services include house, garden and garage clearance, wait and load services, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) collections and site waste management plans (SWMP). The company also offers confidential document destruction.
About the Green Apple Awards
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries. The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an independent, non-political, non-activist, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising and promoting environmental best practice.
Judges for the Green Apple Awards are drawn from the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management, BRE and other independent bodies.
