Last week Premier Waste Management took the gold award for the Corporate Responsibility category at the 2010 PRide awards for public relations work.
The award was for our project with Newcastle College 3D design students to raise their awareness of the importance of reuse, recycling and safe disposal. These 16 to 19 year olds were at the first stage of their training to become the architects, product designers and artists of the future (the class has now graduated).
It is not often that we allow filming at a Premier Waste site - too many moving vehicles and other machinery. We did make an exception for the ITV Fixers. They needed to show how material is sorted and baled for eventual recycling.
They are hoping to take the film into schools to engage young people in learning about recycling and the problems of littering.
The film is now online and can be seen here: http://vimeo.com/17160460
