Changeworks Recycling is Scotland’s Gold Winner for Environmental Best Practice in this year’s Green Apple Awards. The business recycling provider, which last week became the first organisation to join Zero Waste Scotland’s new Resource Sector Commitment, is also in the running for four other prestigious awards for its environmentally sound operations.

The VIBES Scotland awards have shortlisted Changeworks Recycling for their Transport Award, Management Award and their Waste and Resources Award; winners will be announced in October. They’ve also been nominated for Best Green Services Provider at the Scottish Green Awards, which will be announced later this month.

Ken McLean, Changeworks Recycling General Manager said: “It’s really encouraging for our staff that all the innovation and hard work that goes on behind the scenes is recognised by awards and nominations. In addition we hope it’s also encouraging for our clients. Our business doesn’t exist without them and they are the real beneficiaries - reducing waste, carbon and costs.”
