B&M Waste Services won Employer of the Year at the National Recycling Awards at a virtual awards ceremony held on 27th January 2021. Despite fierce competition from Suez Recycling and Recovery UK, and Valpak, the family-owned carbon neutral company prevailed, winning one of the most coveted awards of the evening.
The award recognises businesses that have created safe, supportive and stimulating work environments for its employees, and those which have a genuine commitment to the welfare of its staff. B&M were able to demonstrate high employee satisfaction levels in an ambitious and motivated workforce, driven by how it values staff in areas such as safety, welfare, culture, inclusion, and learning and development.
Commenting on the win, Neil Curtis Managing Director for B&M Waste said: “We are delighted to accept the award on behalf of all our employees who have worked so hard with us to create such an amazing working environment. It’s been a tough year for all of us and we are thrilled to receive such an accolade.”

Corin Williams, MRW editor, said: “The standard of entries this year was very impressive indeed and the winners had to see off a lot of stiff competition. I am once again amazed at the strength and depth in the sector.”
