Carpet Recycling UK deadline approaching
Companies now have less than three weeks to enter the Carpet Recycling UK Awards 2019
There are four award categories open for entry: recycler of the year; reuse member of the year; take back partner of the year and recycling champion.
Three additional awards categories will be presented by Carpet Recycling UK: outstanding achievement; longstanding support and best newcomer.
The recycler of the year award is open to Carpet Recycling UK members that have developed and are continuing to develop new systems and processes to recycle carpet waste. The winner will be innovative and will be working to drive waste up the hierarchy. It is open to recyclers accepting waste carpet for reprocessing and manufacturers developing novel processes to reduce carpet waste
The reuse member of the year award is open to reuse organisations that can demonstrate successful take back and reuse of carpet tiles from construction and refurbishment projects. It is open to reuse organisations accepting waste carpet for cleaning and re-sale.
The take back partner of the year will be awarded to a retailer, distributor, or flooring contractor who has successfully worked and is continuing to work with the supply chain to recycle off cuts and/or uplifted carpet.
Successful recycling within a company is often driven by an enthusiastic ‘recycling champion’ who is committed to waste minimisation and recycling and ensures that everyone within the company is aware of systems that have been put in place. This award will go to a member who has worked hard and shown commitment within a company to set up systems and processes to increase carpet recycling at their site.
All entries must be submitted by Tuesday 18 June 2019. Entrants must be a member of Carpet Recycling UK. The winners will be announced at the Carpet Recycling UK Conference and Awards event at Edgbaston Cricket Club on 18 July 2019.
