Warwickshire CC

Warwickshire County Council’s Waste Management Group has become a byword for innovation and excellence. As well as gaining recognition in its own service sector, the group’s ground-breaking initiatives have been recognised in other disciplines such as public procurement and economic development. Since 2012, the group has been honoured on more than 40 occasions in national and international awards while key team members are regarded as ‘must-haves’ at national best practice events. Recent projects include an austerity-busting exercise to franchise recycling charity re-use shops and a campaign to drive up kerbside-collected food waste – both of which are generating significant savings.
