Council lands award for recycling project
Friday, 23 March 2012
WINNERS: Waltham Forest Council’s Usha Parmer and Debbie Campbell collect the award from GO’s Morven MacNeil and Grahame Steed.
WALTHAM Forest Council has received an award for a scheme that reuses and recycles unwanted paint and furniture.
The Furnishing the Future project was named winner in the GO Procurement Innovation or Initiative of the Year – Non-Health Organisations category at the National GO Awards.
Judges said the scheme had the potential to be replicated anywhere.
Councillor Clyde Loakes, cabinet member for environment, said: “We’re really proud of our Furnishing the Future project and delighted we have received this award in recognition of our achievements.
“Recycling and reusing so much paint and furniture that would otherwise have been disposed of has not only helped us prevent unnecessary waste, but has made a huge impact on the people whose homes have benefited.
“It is a shining example of how, even in these tough economic times, with a little bit of smart thinking put into action we can help to brighten up the lives of our residents without it costing the Earth.”
