Waste Reduction Award - Public/Third Sector - National Recycling Awards
Who should enter: Any UK or Republic of Ireland-based public/third sector organisation. Third sector organisations are defined as not-for-profit organisations that are values driven and independent of government, such as charities, voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises and cooperatives.
About the award: This award recognises those who have successfully achieved their objectives while significantly reducing the resources used or the amount of waste produced. For example, this could be through redesigning products or processes, or through behavioural change. It should be clear how the entry goes beyond recycling, in terms of the waste hierarchy.
What the judges will look for: Evidence of a well planned and executed programme that has maintained or improved performance while reducing the resources used or the amount of waste generated. The winner should be an example for others in how waste reduction can be achieved and the wider financial and environmental benefits of putting in place such a programme. Novel approaches will be rewarded.
