Vote for your recycling hero!

Posted on: 9 January 2019

Communities across Devon are being called on to vote for their People’s Choice Recycling Hero in the sixth annual Recycle Devon Thank You Awards.

This year there have been over 30 nominations in seven different categories including Your Recycling Hero, Collection Crew/Operative and Small Business Champion.

Residents can vote for their People’s Choice Recycling Hero on the Recycle Devon website. Voting will be open until the 16 February.

All the shortlisted candidates have been invited to attend an awards ceremony at County Hall on Friday 22 March in the Coaver Club, hosted by Matt and Victoria from Heart Radio’s breakfast show.

The 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.

Recycle Devon is a partnership of 10 councils including Devon County Council, eight district authorities and Torbay Council.

Councillor Andrea Davis said: “It’s no accident that Devon is one of the top recycling counties in the UK. It’s down to the hard work of residents and communities who want to keep Devon green and beautiful and who care for the environment.

“These awards celebrate and recognise those who have done that little bit extra. So don’t miss out on your opportunity to let us know who you think should win the People’s Choice and get voting.”
