Community Wood Recycling is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted as a finalist in two categories at the Awards for Excellence in Recycling & Waste Management; Circular Economy Success and Best Community Recycling Initiative.

Community Wood Recycling MD Richard Mehmed said,

“I am delighted that the work of our network has been recognised by these nominations.  The number of companies choosing Community Wood Recycling to dispose of their waste timber is growing every year, and by sorting the wood collected for reuse and selling it to their local community our members embody the principles of the circular economy.”

Other finalists include entrepreneurs, commercial organisations, local authorities, third sector groups and individual recycling champions with the winners announced at the awards ceremony on 18 May at the five star Landmark Hotel in London.

Speaking ahead of this year’s event, Jacob Hayler, Executive Director at the Environmental Services Association and also part of the expert judging panel, said,

“Judging this year’s Awards for Excellence was a real honour and a pleasure. There were so many strong entries and it was exciting to see the amount of energy and enthusiasm out there devoted to improving recycling and making the most of our resources.”
