June 14 is the deadline for entries to this year’s 35 under 35 awards programme, which seeks to identify the waste management stars of the future.

Run by Grundon Waste Management in conjunction with, the awards are aimed at identifying the innovators and rising stars who show vision, creativity and determination, who strive for professional excellence and still find the time to give back to their company or community.

Grundon’s Deputy Chairman, Neil Grundon, said: “We think it’s important to recognise those who individuals who will be our industry’s equivalent of the Oscar winners and sporting superstars of the future.

“We want to hear from those who are determined to make a difference, to keep our industry at the forefront of technology, who want to sit at the top table of decision makers, and are not afraid to do things differently.”

The judges are looking to honour people under the age of 35 who have helped to progress their business (as part of a team or individually) in a notable way and achieved substantial success at a young age.

Winners will receive:
