Re-Gen team ‘sets benchmark’ winning coveted MRW National Recycling Award

Re-Gen has won in the Team of the Year Award and was praised by the expert judging panel, who are drawn from across the recycling sector.

The results of the MRW National Recycling Awards were revealed on December 6 at the Westminster Park Plaza, London.

Joseph Doherty, Managing Director at Re-Gen Waste, said: “I’m extremely proud of the Health and Safety Team. It is a small team making a real difference. Representing the unsung heroes of the sector, the team has reduced our accident rate, supports the wider industry, and has set a benchmark from which others can learn and replicate.

“Health and safety are at the centre of our business and the team has driven many projects and is duly recognised for keeping our staff and visitors safe, reducing incidents and accidents, delivering training, and introducing new systems.”

With 20 categories, the awards cover every aspect of the industry, from Recycling Excellence to Local Authority Success.

The MRW National Recycling Awards bring together recycling and resource management professionals to recognise and celebrate best practise and innovation in recycling and resource management. The awards provide industry recognition and unrivalled networking opportunities.

Corin Williams, the editor of MRW, said: “How the UK deals with its resources is one of the most pressing issues of our age.

“The MRW National Recycling Award winners have all demonstrated their ingenuity and effectiveness in preventing waste and reusing or recycling materials.

“If we want to reach our net-zero targets, develop more secure supply chains and take care of our environment, we should take note of these winners. They are leading the way.”

The night of recognition and celebration of the sector’s achievements saw around 500 attendees come together from the recycling industry.

It was hosted by stand-up comedian Angela Barnes, a TV and radio star who has appeared in Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo.
