Oxfordshire councils were those amongst others who came up on top at the Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee (LARAC) Awards.
The awards that recognise dedication, success and achievements of local authority recycling officers and their teams were held in Warwickshire last week (17th October) and awards were presented to an Oxfordshire communications officer and two councils in the area.
Paul Mocroft, a communications officer for Oxfordshire Waste Partnership was given the award for recycling officer of the year. His achievement was down to his commitment to the recycling industry and judges were particularly impressed that he had got David Cameron to pose with a reusable shopping bag for impromptu photo.
Other successful Oxfordshire folk included the Vale of White Horse and South Oxfordshire district councils who won the ‘best improved recycling rates award.’ The councils improved their recycling rates from 42% and 36% back in 2009 up to 68% by 2012.
