Wiser finalist in Innovation Award for Excellence

Our sister company, Wiser Recycling, was a runner-up in the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Innovation Award at the MRW Awards for Excellence last night.

MRW National Recycling Awards finalist logo 2016This prestigious industry award recognises those in the recycling industry that have taken a creative and innovative approach to reducing the impact of WEEE.

Wiser Recycling was recognised for our strong performance in a difficult market and particularly for our investment in a Smash Boom Bang. The first of its kind in the UK, the German technology broadens our in-house capabilities to process small mixed WEEE. This innovative choice of equipment not only gives us processing capability for this growing waste stream but reduces our transport emissions and costs and improves the quality of the end product materials.

Russell HIrst, Managing Director, says: “We are very pleased to have been a finalist for this award. The WEEE industry is a tough environment in which to operate so it’s great to have our innovation and success recognised.”

The award ceremony took place at the London Hilton on 6th July.

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance. Overall, the guidance outlines how operators must control and monitor emissions from their activities that may cause pollution.

Changes include clarifications regarding when the EA will want an odour management plan. They may request one during pre-application, determination, variation or at any point during the lifetime of your permit.

Also, Materials recycling and handle odorous inputs or reject streams and Intensive Farming have been added to the list of Activities that require an odour management plan.
