We are proud to announce that together with our partners at Stroud District Council our waste and recycling service for the district has made it on to the shortlist of the National Recycling Awards 2019.

The service has been shortlisted in the Food Waste Initiative category for its food waste collection, and in the Local Authority Success - Overall Service Change category for cutting waste to landfill. It follows the council being identified by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) as the highest performing council for recycling in the south west, and with residents, throwing away the least amount of residual waste in England.

In November 2016, Ubico started working in partnership with Stroud District Council to collect their waste and recycling, servicing approximately 52,000 households across the district.

"We introduced a new collection regime in 2016 to cut landfill and increase recycling, and it is clear that residents have embraced it," said Stroud District Council's Head of Community Services, Mike Hammond. "We were really pleased to see that everyone's hard work means we have been recognised by Defra, and now we're in the running for these prestigious awards too. I would like to thank our residents, and SDC waste and recycling staff past and present who have made it such a success."

The National Recycling Awards are run by Materials Recycling World magazine, and a panel of judges will assess all the entries over the coming month and decide on a winner based on the strength of submission and how close it was to meeting the criteria.

All finalists will find out if they have won a National Recycling Award in June.
