Success for NRC at the MRW National Recycling Awards 2018
The National Resource Consortium (NRC) enjoyed a tremendous night of success at the 2018 MRW National Recycling Awards as NRC took home the award for Recycling Excellence - Retail/Public Services.
Awards for 20 hotly contested categories were announced at a glittering ceremony at the London Hilton on 28 June attended by professionals from across the waste and recycling sector.
NRC’s Recycling Excellence accolade was awarded for the consortium’s outstanding work with The Original Factory Shop (Tofs). Through a collaborative process, NRC’s experts implemented new zero to landfill systems across Tofs’ 219 stores, two distribution hubs and the company’s head office which quickly cut waste and recycling costs by 40%.
The extensive savings were achieved thanks to NRC establishing a thorough understanding of the client’s needs, enabling the team to introduce efficiencies across cardboard, metal, poly, site equipment, and sorting processes.
The National Resource Consortium (NRC) was founded by 12 independent waste processing firms with a desire to offer organisations a new approach to national waste and recycling management. One of the members is local waste management specialist Mick George Ltd, who serve the Peterborough, Northants, Leicestershire, Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes areas for national contracts awarded to the NRC.
Through NRC, the UK’s leading independent waste operators join forces to offer the flexibility, responsiveness and bespoke service of local providers, underpinned by corporate-quality capacity and outstanding contract management. With a strong focus on environmentally responsible waste disposal, NRC diverts 93% of all customer waste from landfill with many clients achieving 100% diversion from landfill.
Commenting on the National Recycling Awards, NRC Director, Paul Jackson, said: “We’re thrilled to be recognised for our work with Tofs which is just one of many cases where our thorough consultative process and honest approach to client communication has enabled us to deliver great improvements and savings.
Jackson Continued: ‘’Although our operator network is made up of our industry’s leading independent firms, NRC itself is a fairly young company and this award is a fantastic endorsement of our collaborative approach to developing made-to-measure waste services.’’
