We held our fourth Recycling Awards on Friday 27 September in the Cattistock room at Poole Civic Centre. The aim for organising the Awards is to recognise all those people/organisations who go the extra mile when it comes to recycling. In addition we use the opportunity to say a big thank you for our volunteers and the venues who support our Win on Waste sessions.
This year, the Leader of BCP Council, Cllr Vikki Slade presented the awards, which as well as certificates, included some wonderful creative trophies produced by one of our Ambassadors, Laura. We thank Mark Wheeler for taking all the lovely photos.
