Recycle 360 has been shortlisted in the ‘Team of the Year – Public/Third Sector’ category for its service delivery team, as well as the ‘Health & Safety Initiative’ category for the Waste Handling & Recycling Centre on Southall Lane. The latter is a joint nomination with Hounslow Council, Eunomia Research & Consulting and Wilmott Dixon Construction.

Lampton 360 was established by Hounslow Council in 2012 to trade local authority functions with all surpluses made returning to the council.

The winners will be revealed on 28 June at a ceremony held at the London Hilton, Park Lane.

Leader of Hounslow Council, Councillor Steve Curran said: “The council made a bold move when it established its own trading company in 2012 so it is with genuine delight that we now see Recycle 360 being recognised as an industry leader. As part of our commitment to be cleaner and greener we invested £22m in our new state-of-the-art facility on Southall Lane, with the aim of increasing recycling in the borough whilst generating revenue which can then support the council’s frontline services. The facility has only been in operation since the end of last year, yet it has already been nominated for a number of awards which is a real triumph for Hounslow.”

Dave Ward, Managing Director of Lampton 360, said: “It is testament to the combined energies and expertise of all of our partner organisations to be nominated for this prestigious industry award. We are very proud to be operating this recycling facility which provides improved recycling revenue for our sole shareholder, the London Borough of Hounslow. To be nominated for this award demonstrates the degree of excellence achieved and to be recognised nationally by our industry peers is a credit to all involved.

To have the staff of Recycle 360 shortlisted for the ‘Team of the Year’ award demonstrates the quality of the work that they have all contributed to in implementing many service improvements since the service started in late 2016. So much has been delivered by a major frontline service in a short space of time and their efforts are to be congratulated.”

Robin Latchem, Editor of MRW, said: “Our awards are often the first to highlight innovation and best practice in recycling and waste management and it’s exciting to see previous winners establishing themselves as exemplars of resource efficiency.”
