The company, which celebrated its 20th birthday last month, transfers over 500,000 tonnes of commercial waste each year and hires out over 50,000 skips each year.

With over 97% of the waste it handles being recycled, Wastecycle is one of the country’s leading recycling and waste management companies, employing over 320 people at four sites, one in Nottingham and three in Leicester.

The award was presented to Wastecycle’s Commercial Director Paul Clements, last week (10th May) at a celebratory lunch at the Landmark Hotel, London.

“I know it’s a cliché, but we are delighted to have won the award for Waste Transfer and Skip Hire Business of the Year. Everyone at Wastecycle works incredibly hard to do the best job we can for our customers and to ensure we provide a high-quality service,” said Paul. “Helping people reduce their waste, reuse it where possible and recycle as much of it as we can is a real passion for Wastecycle, and it’s fantastic when your efforts are recognised.”
