Top Zero Waste award presented to ITV’s Coronation Street

Posted on 5th June, 2017

The winner of the platinum Zero Waste award, sponsored by the WasteCare Group, was recognised at the annual Excellence Awards in London last month with ITV’s Coronation Street taking the crown.

The TV programme won for its work in minimising its waste throughout the production process and for a high level of recycling of materials as well as reuse wherever possible.

Peter Hunt, chairman of the WasteCare Group that sponsors the Award, said: “I was delighted to see such a high profile winner of the Award and it was fascinating to see how they had worked towards zero waste from set production through to day-to-day minimisation such as with regard to food waste.”

Other finalists in the category, which is hosted by letsrecycle.com, were:

  • Geary’s Bakery in partnership with PH Hull & Sons
  • The Meadows Shopping Centre. Chelmsford
  • Melton Foods in partnership with Veris Strategies
