Wiser Recycling wins Green Apple Award 2016

Wiser Recycling has won a Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice 2016 in the Green Organisation’s annual campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities.

Wiser Recycling's Green Apple Award 2016Competing against over 500 nominations, our sister company won the award for their innovative approach and investment in process equipment for small electrical appliances, which broadened their capabilities in WEEE treatment.

Wiser Recycling was presented with a trophy and certificate at a ceremony in the Houses of Parliament, London on Friday.

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries. The awards are organised by The Green Organisation, an international, independent, non-political, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.

Russell Hirst, Managing Director says: “We are delighted to have won this award and be recognised for our forward-thinking approach to innovation and sustainable development.”

The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.

This award win comes on the back of Wiser Recycling being a finalist in the MRW Awards for Excellence earlier this year.

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.
