Vote for your People’s Choice Recycling Hero in this year’s Thank You Awards

People's Choice Hero Award

Posted on: 6 January 2020

Communities and residents across Devon are being called on to vote for their ‘People’s Choice Hero’ as part of the 7th annual Thank You Awards.

A shortlist has been created from the nominations made by the public and can now be viewed and voted for on the Recycle Devon website.

Votes will be open until 31 January 2020.

All the shortlisted candidates have been invited to attend an awards ceremony at County Hall on 6 March 2020 in the Coaver Club.

The Thank You Awards are organised by the Recycle Devon team, and were first launched to recognise those people who do that bit extra to help ensure Devon remains clean and green.

There were over 40 nominations in seven different categories for this year’s awards including School Recycling Hero, Collection Crew/Operative and Small Business Champion.

The People’s Choice Hero award is an additional category to be voted on by members of the public.

Recycle Devon is a partnership of 10 councils including Devon County Council, Torbay Council and the eight District Councils. Chairman of Devon Authorities Strategic Waste Committee (DASWC) Councillor David Harvey said:

“This is a great opportunity to recognise and thank the people of Devon who go above and beyond to help keep our local communities clean and green.

Thank you to all those who took the time to submit over 40 well deserved nominations. A shortlist has been compiled and it’s now up to the public to decide who should win the People’s Choice Hero at this year’s awards.”
