Shortlisted for the AFOR awards

Shortlisted for the AFOR awards

Posted Mar 14, 2012 by: Nick Hawthorne


Olus are delighted to be nominated for a Local Partnership Award, between Olus, WSCC and HDC. This is a prestigious award from the AfOR ( Association for Organics Recycling ) and we have been nominated in to the final three.

"This award is designed to highlight how collection and processing can be streamlined to provide an efficient and effective service, whilst demonstrating what measures have been taken between a local authority and processing company to deliver a service which offers excellent value for money."
Viridor, West Sussex County Council, Horsham District Council and Olus
"During the past 12 months, Viridor has been working in close partnership with West Sussex County Council (WSCC), Horsham District Council (HDC) and Olus to introduce a district wide, comingled, dry recyclate collection that allows the removal of paper and card from the kerbside collected green waste service. This has enabled all parties to efficiently streamline the process of composting and recycling in one positive movement. The introduction of this scheme has had huge results within the network of West Sussex, whereby it has taken the paper and card out; focussing on it as a material source, and increased its standing within the waste hierarchy; thereby moving it from composting to recycling; in line with the Government waste policy review."
