One of Premier Waste's customers wanted advice on how to reduce the amount of food that it was sending to landfill, the food was fit for consumption so we put them in touch with FareShare.
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

Students on the 3D Design course at Newcastle College have showcased their own range of innovative and sustainable products designed with recycled or reusable materials.
The exhibition is the culmination of a term long project in conjunction with Premier Waste Management.
Twenty eight students from across the North East, all studying a National Diploma in 3D Design, were challenged by Premier Waste to construct sustainable design products out of recyclable materials that solve recycling problems, in a competition to determine which designs are best for the environment and will protect the planet in the future.
You don't have to be in the waste and recycling industry for long before you become interested in the issue of sustainability and climate change.
I end my waste and recycling presentation to school kids with a picture of the Earth from space and they immediately grasp the significance. Once something is used up, it is gone. Use up the Earth and we have nowhere else to go.
Home is a film by renowned photo-journalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand that uses stunning aerial shots of the Earth's landscapes, natural phenomena, animals and human industry to show the impact we are having on the planet.
