As a leading business payment provider in the UK recycling and waste management industry, Bread4Scrap was excited to partner with the sector at this year’s Awards with the aim of rewarding excellence in the UK Recycling and Waste management sector.

The Awards for Excellence in Recycling & Waste Management ceremony luncheon, hosted on Thursday, 16th May 2024, at the Grosvenor House London, was a success and the perfect opportunity to recognise innovation, dedication, and success in the sector. Bread4Scrap (B4S) was honoured to sponsor the ‘Waste Transfer and Skip Hire Business of the Year’ Award and congratulate the Winner of the category, Westminster Waste LTD.

Founded in 2010, leading players in the sector, such as Westminster Waste LTD, are among the thousands of UK businesses enabling the growth in the scrap metal, recycling and waste management industry, which is expected to reach a potential £18.10 billion in value by 2026.Windsor Waste Management was runners up as highly recommended in the ‘Waste Transfer and Skip Hire Business of the Year’ Award. Tony McPartland, Group Managing Director for Windsor Waste Management, says, “We are really pleased to be recognised by the industry as a leader in the Waste Transfer and Skip Hire Business of the Year category at the Awards for Excellence. Being Highly Commended is a testament to the hard work all the team do on a day-to-day basis for our clients and long may it continue!”

Over the past 18 years, the growth and achievements in the sector continue to contribute positively to the UK economy. Our involvement at B4S within the industry has inspired environmentally friendly cards made from 76% recycled post-industrial waste, serving as a boost to providing sustainable payment solutions to niche markets in the metal recycling and waste management industry across the UK.

“Payments may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you think about scrap metal. But, nationwide recycling targets and a push for sustainability have increased demand within the industry.

There is now a more immediate need for more accessible, quicker, and more efficient payment solutions for serving suppliers and clients in the sector, which has been our unique offering for the past 18 years,” said Tim Robson, Account Director, B4B Payments.

It was fantastic to spend the afternoon celebrating the businesses within the sponsored category and recognise the outstanding work of the waste sector’s best and brightest alongside industry peers; we say congratulations to all the winners.
