We are looking for the unsung Recycling Heroes of Kirklees and need your help to find and recognise them. Virtually everyone is doing their bit these days to help combat climate change, look after the environment, and make the best use of our resources. However, some of us are going that little bit further. In fact, some are going a lot, lot further, which is why we need your help.

We are asking people to nominate people, schools and businesses that are setting the standard when it comes to recycling in Kirklees. If you know one, all we need from you is a statement of 200 words maximum on why you think they should win one of the four awards below:

  • Recycling Hero - a person that is leading by example and doing all they can to recycle
  • Young Recycling Hero - open to under 16-year-olds, this person could be setting an individual or community example
  • School Recycling Hero - a school that is head and shoulders above others when it comes to recycling
  • Business Recycling Hero - a business that is setting the benchmark in recycling their waste materials.

We want these awards to be a big surprise to the winners, so please do not let them know you have put their name forward. Once the entries have been shortlisted, we will get back to you so you can share the good news, or we can do that for you if you prefer.

The Shortlisted nominees will be invited to an awards ceremony with the Mayor of Kirklees, which will be held in Huddersfield Town Hall on 27 October.
