Following on from building a greenhouse out of plastic bottles supplied by H W Martin Waste Ltd, youngsters on the National Citizen Service initiative were at Derby’s historic Roundhouse to collect a range of awards for their many and varied achievements.
More than 120 young people aged 15 and 16 attended the event, hosted by Derby College. Many projects were recognised, including the building of the eco-greenhouse out of 1,500 recycled plastic bottles at Broomfield College’s Little Explorers Nursery.
Attending the event for H W Martin Waste was Ged Pearce, one of the company’s Derbyshire-based managers, who noted, “The night was a great success.”
H W Martin Waste Ltd supports or is actively involved in many community-based intiatives across the UK, which seek to highlight the benefits to the environment of recycling and the re-use of resources.
