LSSL Win at the Let’s Recycle Awards!

This week, congratulations are in order for our fantastic colleagues in Waste Collection and Business Support for winning an award at the Letsrecycle awards! They nailed it in the ‘Service Change at a Local Authority Level’ category for the introduction of the text-to-collect on demand clinical waste service.

Launched in 2022, this new service allows residents to book a clinical collection as and when they need one via text message. As well as improving the service for residents, it has reduced an overspend for LSSL and has significantly reduced missed collections, showing how trying something new and taking a chance on new technology has paid off!
