Peterborough City Council shortlisted for recycling award
Amey and Peterborough City Council have been shortlisted for two awards at this year's prestigious National Recycling Awards, which celebrate excellence across the waste sector.
They have picked up nominations in two categories; Private-Public Partnership and a Communications award for the Love Peterborough, Love your Community scheme.
The partnership, between Amey and the council, sees Amey deliver a range of essential environmental and operational services in Peterborough City on behalf of the council.
James Collingridge, Amey Partnership Manager for Peterborough City Council said: “As well as delivering the contractual services, the partnership works collaboratively on additional services, and community aspects to ensure continued delivery and improvement to services.”
Amey’s Communications Team has also been shortlisted for the work on the’ Love Peterborough: Love your Community’ Recycling Reward Scheme, which was launched in partnership with the council in October last year.
The scheme introduced a new approach towards recycling, and inspires residents within seven of the city’s areas to recycle more, gain green points and benefit their local community.
Green points are gained by residents taking part in recycling based activities and recording their recycling efforts on or off line.
The first round of rewards was made in March this year, with Stanground achieving the most green points and voting to reward Peterborough’s Food Bank with the £3000 prize money.
Kieron King, Amey’s Principal Operations Manager in Peterborough said, “Being finalists in both these categories is a real honour and recognises the fantastic work carried out by both teams.
“It also demonstrates the effective partnership working between Peterborough City Council and Amey, and the outstanding contribution to recycling and waste management in the city.”
EMAP, who run the prestigious National Recycling Awards said; “The winners, and those who are shortlisted, are the very best in the industry.”
