Celebrating commitment to zero waste

A sustainable society is one that makes the most of its resources, reducing waste and keeping products and materials in the loop.

Businesses, public authorities and third sector organisations are realising the benefits of adopting a Zero Waste approach, eliminating waste to realise environmental and cost benefits. The Zero Waste Awards recognise and reward leadership, innovation and commitment to this goal.

Unique in the waste and recycling sector, the Zero Waste Awards are non-competitive and are awarded on merit, with Highly Commended, Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards to recognise good practice in the field. So whether you’ve completely eliminated waste from your processes, or you’re just setting out on the journey towards Zero Waste, a Zero Waste Award is within reach.

Winning a Zero Waste Award demonstrates commitment to environmental and cost savings to your customers, clients, partners and funders.

Free to enter, the Zero Waste Awards are celebrated at the annual recognition luncheon. Winners of the Gold Zero Waste Award are also automatically entered into the Zero Waste Platinum category at the Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management. This year, the Zero Waste Platinum Award was awarded to KP Snacks.

The Awards have been established by, the news and information portal for the recycling and waste management sector, businesses and local Government. They are partnered by SAICA Natur, the multinational paper and packaging manufacturer, Wastecare, the national waste management experts and Ceris Burns International, specialist PR and communication agency for the environmental; recycling and waste management; facilities management and cleaning industries. 

Submitting an entry is straightforward and takes just a few simple steps. Why not give it a try?
