Top three named in 35 under 35 award scheme

Three waste management specialists have been named as the top rising stars in their sector thanks to a new awards programme designed to support and encourage young professionals.


The ’35 under 35’ campaign was launched by Grundon Waste Management in association with LetsRecycle.com, and the winners were announced last night (May 10) at this year’s Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management at the Landmark Hotel in London.


Taking top honours from a very competitive field were Joe Allen, Chief Commercial Officer at First Mile, Victoria Hutchin, Associate Waste and Resource Management Consultant at consultants WYG, and Edward van Reenen, Head of Health & Sustainability at Bywaters.


Lorraine Milburn, Head of Human Resources at Grundon, who was one of the judges, said: “Grundon was delighted to play its part in this inaugural event and we were very excited to see the calibre of all those who entered. The judging was extremely tough but all three are extremely worthy winners.


“It is reassuring to know that the future of our industry has such a wealth of up-and-coming talent which will stand us in good stead during the challenging times ahead. We hope these awards will develop and go on to become a real benchmark for future excellence and something that younger professionals will strive towards during their careers.”


Beth Slow of letsrecycle.com said: “It’s been great to see such a high standard of entries for the first ever 35 under 35 awards programme for the recycling and waste management industry. 


“Congratulations to everyone who made the list! The nominations show the enthusiasm and drive of the younger leaders and forward thinkers in the sector and we look forward to seeing their careers progress – whether it be in private companies, local authorities or working as consultants or innovators in the industry.”


The programme was open to professionals aged 35 or under who have shown vision, creativity and determination within their roles. Individuals who strive for professional excellence, promote industry innovation and who also give back to their company, local authority or community.
