Winner of the Best Waste Management Initiative in the Commercial and Public Sector in the Awards for Excellence 2010

Our new recycling scheme has beaten nationwide competition to win the best Waste Management Initiative in the Commercial and Public Sector Award.

The Letsrecycle.com Awards for Excellence are a national showcase for innovation and success in recycling and waste management. In the public sector award category, the judges were looking for excellence in waste diversion or minimisation as well as a first class recycling service.

Since the council rolled out its new kerbside collection and recycling scheme, it recorded 48 per cent of household waste being recycled in March. This was double the 24 per cent recorded for February 2009. With figures increasing month by month, the accumulated figures for the year indicate that Hull looks set to reach 50 per cent, thereby breaking through the 45 per cent target set for a March 2011 deadline.
