Success at LARAC Awards 2019

COMPANY VID

Countrystyle was proud to return as a sponsor for the ‘Outstanding Contribution to Recycling’ category in the 2019 LARAC Awards. Due to its continuous expansion, the awards took place in a new venue for 2019. Hosted at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole hotel, it was a successful evening for everyone in attendance and celebrated success for innovations from throughout the year.

Devon county council’s reuse project officer Catherine Causley was rewarded for her “extraordinary organisational skills”. After joining the local authority in October 2017, Ms Causley has set up a range of programmes including Devon Reuse Week, Devon Upcycling Day, WEEE repair events and the Big Fix, which broke the world record for the most items fixed at one repair café.

Attending on behalf of Countrystyle and presenting the sponsored award, managing director Chris Howard commented: “tonight celebrates real achievement in the industry. It is a great event each year where likeminded individuals congregate in celebration of innovation and passion in the industry. We at Countrystyle would like to offer our sincerest congratulations to the winners and runners-up!”

The LARAC celebration awards are the only dedicated awards for waste and recycling officers. The entries are judged by a panel of experts from across the waste management industry and local authorities.
