The awards ceremony, held in London’s Landmark Hotel on Wednesday July 21, is the most prestigious event in the environmental calendar promoting the efforts of all businesses in the recycling, reuse and waste reduction sector.
The award for Metal Recycling Business of the Year aims to recognise the work done by a metals recycling company, small or large operating in the UK which has provided a service in a consistent and thorough way for its customers.
John Lawrie Metals was represented by Ray Grant, environmental consultant, who attended the event and collected the award on the company’s behalf. He commented: “What a fantastic event, it was great to be a part of it and even better for John Lawrie to win. The team work so hard to make sure the business is run as efficiently as possible and are always on the look out for innovative ways to reuse and repurpose the material we receive into our yards. It’s recognition well deserved in my eyes.”

We are lucky to have such a dedicated and hard-working team who are always willing to go above and beyond to keep the business moving forward. Driving a circular economy is what our business has been built on so to know that what we are doing has been recognised and is appreciated is a great result.”
