INNOVATIVE waste management techniques have led to South Cambridgeshire District Council picking up a national award.

The district council is part of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Waste Partnership (RECAP), which scooped a Government Business Award at an awards event held at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

Cllr Sue Ellington portfolio holder for environmental services at the district council, said: "This project has successfully filled a gap in our recycling services for local businesses, providing practical solutions that go some way to matching the full range of recycling services that our residents benefit from. We are very pleased it has been nationally recognised and reward the efforts of those working on the project."

The winning scheme encourages local businesses to recycle their waste, including the setting up of recycling collections and the development of a useful guide to help small and medium sized businesses understand legislation and the waste services on offer.
