TOUCHWOOD has been handed a prestigious award for its recycling project for the second year running.
The shopping centre was handed the Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice for its Recycling Behaviour Change project, which saw the team improve recycling rates across the board.
Touchwood has gone from recycling 40 per cent of waste on average, to fully recycling a 98 per cent of materials, with the remaining two per cent going towards energy recovery, enabling it to achieve no waste to landfill.
Touchwood’s entry has now been put forward to receive either a Green Champion, Gold, Silver or Bronze award, which will be presented at the Houses of Parliament in November.
Andy Cole MBE, General Manager of Touchwood, said: “”We are delighted to receive a Green Apple for the second year running in recognition of the team’s hard work.
“Sustainability has always been one of our core values here at Touchwood.
“We are committed to continually seeking new ways in which we can further reduce our carbon footprint year-after-year.”
