Grundon wins a glittering hat-trick of Green Apple Awards

There was gold, silver and bronze in the air on Monday (November 12) as Grundon Waste Management and its customers picked up three fabulous Green Apple Awards for Environment Best Practice at the Houses of Parliament.

Taking The Green Organisation’s very top honours in the category for Retail and Wholesale Wastes Management was Savills Xscape Milton Keynes, which scooped a gold Green Apple Award. 

Awarded a silver Green Apple Award in the same category was JLL’s Windsor Yards Shopping Centre.

And for Environmental Best Practice in Health Wastes Management, London North West Healthcare NHS Trust was awarded a bronze Green Apple Award.

Grundon’s Bradley Smith, Sales & Marketing Director, who attended the event and hosted Grundon’s guests, said: “This is a real celebration of the power of a proactive waste management partnerships. We would all like to say a special thank you to our fabulous customers who joined us here today, and to all their employees and colleagues for their ongoing commitment to best practice and achieving such great results. Well done to each and every one of them.” 

Gold winner

In early 2017, Xscape Milton Keynes set a target to increase recycling from 37% to 70% by 2020. By April 2018, Grundon had already surpassed this by achieving a 74% recycling rate. The two organisations have also worked together to reduce general waste collections by 50% and have doubled the food waste tonnage sent to anaerobic digestion.

Gold standard: Mark Peasley, Contract Manager at Grundon; Carl Meale, General Manager at Savills; and Stephen Hill, Head of Sales at Grundon, celebrate Xscape Milton Keynes taking top honours in the Retail and Wholesale Wastes Management category at the Green Apple Awards.

Carl Meale, General Manager, Savills, said: “In an industry like ours, where we are always reviewing budgets, it’s good to have a service partner who comes to you with money-saving solutions and indeed, who even makes you money. I always feel they have our best interests at heart and there is a real element of trust in the way we work together.”

Silver winner

Thanks to an education programme and new waste containers, tenants at Windsor Yards Shopping Centre have a better understanding of the importance of segregation. Now less waste goes to Energy from Waste and more is recycled and sent for Anaerobic Digestion.

Silver lining: Grundon's Alex Grant, Customer Relationship Manager - JLL; and Robert Gramson, Centre Manager at Windsor Yards Shopping Centre celebrate winning a silver Green Apple Award in the Retail and Wholesale category.

Robert Gramson, Centre Manager, said: “Everything has been done to promote recycling and with Grundon’s help, we have been able to help educate our tenants about segregation and encouraging them to put things in the right bins.”

Bronze winner

A trust-wide recycling campaign and 100% diversion from landfill delivered improved sustainability performance and cost savings for the team at London North West Healthcare NHS Trust. The Trust covers three acute hospitals and nine community sites and the contract includes all healthcare waste, hazardous waste, domestic waste, recycling, food, WEEE and confidential waste.

Successful partnership: Grundon's Toye Ogunleye, Waste Manager (NHS Trusts) and Scott Williams, Head of Contract Management at Grundon; celebrate with Artis Richard and Brenda Brown from London North West Healthcare NHS Trust after scooping a bronze Green Apple Award in the Health Wastes Management category.

The Green Apple Environment Awards were launched in 1994 by The Green Organisation to recognise, reward and promote environmental best practice around the world, and have become well established as one of the most popular global environmental campaigns.
