News R Collard Named Finalist Construction Recycler Year Award

Hampshire-based waste management company R Collard Ltd has been named as a finalist for the prestigious Construction Recycler of the Year accolade at the MRW National Recycling Awards 2016.

The awards reward excellence and it was the commitment that R Collard has shown placing itself at the centre of the circular economy of the South of England that has gained them a place amongst the finalists.

Key initiatives that impressed the judges included the development of a new state-of-the-art Materials Recycling Facility to increase waste processing capacity four fold, the acquisition of a locally based skip hire firm to increase wastes generated by 30 per cent and the £2.5 million investment in a new technology wash plant which has enabled R Collard to process inert wastes into high-grade aggregates all year round.

These measures have increased wastes managed by 24.5 per cent and have made a significant and positive impact on the local economy. Some signature local projects include the Arborfield and Wellesley garrison sites and the A34 Chieveley interchange project where R Collard provided 10,000 tonnes of 40mm shingle for the redevelopment.

“Being a finalist in these National Recycling Awards is a great honour for the company,” says Robert Collard, R Collard’s managing director.

“We have focused our efforts on creating a business that puts sustainability at the forefront of all our service areas and it is gratifying that the judges at MRW have recognized this. This year R Collard is celebrating 21 years in business and this is encouragement to continue to build on these successes for the next 21.”

The shortlist was announced on Monday, and there now follows a second round of judging before the winner of each category is announced at the London Hilton on July 6.
