Nominations are now open for the Recycling Heroes of Kirklees Awards which is being staged by Kirklees Council which is calling on the people of Kirklees to nominate individuals, schools, and businesses.
Residents to nominate and recognise the people who are setting the example and benchmark when it comes to recycling in Kirklees.
There are four separate categories that people or organisations can be nominated in, those being, Recycling Hero, Young Recycling Hero, School Recycling Hero, and Business Recycling Hero.
Councillor Naheed Mather, Cabinet Member for Environment said: “Virtually everyone is doing their bit these days to help combat climate change, look after the environment, and make the best use of our resources – but some of us are going that little bit further – in fact, some are going a lot, lot further. We think these people should be recognised for what they do, which is why we have set up these awards for Recycling Week. You may know someone who is active in your community, or a young person that is collecting and recycling materials, a school that has built recycling into its curriculum or a business that should be seen as a benchmark when it comes to waste recycling; if so, we want to hear about them.”
All it takes to nominate a person, school or business is 200 words maximum on why they should win one of the awards.
The shortlisted nominees will be invited to a ceremony in Huddersfield Town Hall where the awards will be presented by the Mayor of Kirklees on 27 October.
Nominations close on 10 October, no nominations will be accepted after this date.
