The best features in recycling
Recolight wins Recycling and Waste Management Business of the Year at the 2012 National Recycling Awards
Recolight, the UK lighting industry’s Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive (WEEE) compliance scheme, has been recognised for its contributions to recycling awareness and education within the UK.
The organisation was awarded with the first ever Recycling and Waste Management Business of the Year (SME) award at the National Recycling Awards on 3 July in recognition of the significant strides the company has made in increasing recycling participation and awareness through its education and communication programmes.
The Recycling and Waste Management Business of the Year award recognises outstanding customer service, market innovation, growth and high performance among WEEE compliance schemes. Recolight was singled out in particular, for its success in what is considered to be a ‘difficult’ waste stream.
“The whole team at Recolight are very proud and pleased to have won this award”, said Nigel Harvey, Recolight’s Chief Executive. “It is recognition of our achievements since the WEEE regulations were introduced five years ago and of our commitment to expanding lamp recycling facilities for all.”
Recolight competed against companies including Anyjunk, Casepak, Re-Gen Waste, First Mile, Hadfield Wood Recyclers, McGrath Group, Reconomy and Specialist Waste Recycling to win the category.
Business-focused awards categories are relatively new additions to the National Recycling Awards, and reflect the growing role that small businesses have to play in recycling and waste management.
All categories within the waste hierarchy are recognised in the National Recycling Awards, which include awards for best recycled product, efficiency initatives and waste minimisation, amongst others. In order to be considered for an award, an organisation or company had to demonstrate effective strategy, improvement, innovative and creative solutions and strong business programmes.
