  • MRW National Recycling Awards

    The results of the MRW National Recycling Awards (NRAs) were revealed on 27 January during a virtual ceremony where hundreds of people gathered online to champion the industry’s achievements.

    With 17 categories, the awards cover every aspect of the recycling and waste management industry, from Food Waste Initiative to Recycling Excellence. The NRAs bring together recycling and waste management professionals to recognise and celebrate best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management. The awards provide industry recognition and unrivaled networking opportunities.

    In partnership with Repic, Environcom has been awarded Highly Commended for Partnership Excellence – Commercial.

    On LinkedIn, Environcom CEO, Cris Stephenson, commented…

    “Very pleased and proud of both teams at Environcom and Repic as Highly Commended was a very good result especially given the nature of the award which was “partnership” and not the actual technology of CARRIE.

    I really hope it is a sign that the whole marketplace is maturing from an adversarial approach to a partnership approach. I came from the Logistics, road transport market and when I joined that industry, companies like M&S were lauded for their aggressive approach to suppliers ultimately topped by one of Britain’s biggest supermarkets methodology but new Retailers and indeed some of the old ones realised that contrary to the mantra “screw your supplier down and you get the best price & service” the opposite was true for long term relationships. Because what occurs is that both companies are hell-bent on getting one over on each other and only working for their own goals that the obvious cost and service benefits that suit both are missed. This damages both parties in the long term and ill serves the ultimate customer….….us or, in the case of our industry, the Environment.”

    Graeme Milne, Strategic Business Development Director of Repic Ltd also commented…

    “We were delighted to be nominated with our friends Environcom Ltd for the “Partnership Excellence - Commercial” award at today’s National Recycling Awards, hosted by comedian Tom Allen. Very pleased to receive a Highly Commended from the judges.”

  • The Secret World of your Rubbish - Channel 5

    Prior to the March Lockdown, Production Company Knickerbockerglory TV visited our Grantham site to shoot a documentary called The Secret World of Your Rubbish: Series 2.

    The film crew spent three days following the entire process of both recycling and re-use items from start to finish, involving various members of our employees in the filming.
