COLERAINE-based RiverRidge Recycling is celebrating after picking up two top awards at Northern Ireland’s waste management and recycling industry’s leading awards.
The annual Sustainable Ireland 2013 Awards, held on 18th September in Belfast, recognise the energy,renewable and waste industries and saw the company carry off the closely contested title of Best Waste Carrier award.
Their work was further recognised with the night’s top accolade – Waste Management and Environmental Excellence.
“To be recognised by our peers in the industry is a great testament to the hard work and dedication of the team in ensuring we’ve a first class waste management company,” said RiverRidge managing director Brett Ross.
“Just under three years ago, Coleraine Skip Hire and Recycling Ltd was acquired and after a sizeable investment, effort and vision we are now one of Northern Ireland’s leading waste management companies.
“Working with the local community and our customers, including the local councils, has been a privilege.
“The team at RiverRidge Recycling should be very proud of these awards, without their efforts the company would not have achieved so much in these few years.”
With a world class recycling centre including a state of the art transfer station, he said the firm had managed to help many organisations looking for a simple and efficient way to improve recycling performance, achieve environmental compliance and control costs.
“RiverRidge Recycling focuses upon recovering and recycling a significant proportion of the waste we process with a total commitment to diverting waste away from landfill.
For RiverRidge Recycling assisting companies to divert waste from landfill is the right thing to do and more importantly good for the environment.”
