National Award to the Gästrike region for the
export of their expertise.
Press release 26 November 2015
On November 25th we saw Gastrike återvinnare take home a
national prize for their successful investment in the export of
knowledge. The Swedish recycling Award 2015 recognises
Gästrike återvinnare’s endeavours both locally and internatio-
nally to contribute to a world that will last longer.
”It feels good to receive confirmation that we are making the
right decisions. We have created an advisory business for sus-
tainable development in an international arena”, said Thomas
Nylund, Association Director, Gästrike återvinnare
”I hope that the national prize we received today will inspire
other stakeholders in the industry to invest internationally”, said
Per-Olov Hallberg, Head of International Relations at Gästrike
Internationally, Gästrike återvinnare had been engaged in an
advisory capacity in Serbia before their EU entry. In Poland, the
municipality association implemented an EU funded training
programme for 520 contracting companies within the waste
management industry. Further assignments in both Europé and
the rest of the world are pending.
Gästrike återvinnare have lots of energy and employees have
extensive knowledge in waste management and how to make
the infrastructure within waste management and the environ-
ment work. By daring to take new pathways we are creating
more value in our region and in other countries. We make it
possible for others to be environmental heroes.
The Swedish Recycling Award gala was hosted by the magazi-
ne Recycle, the Swedish Recycling Industries Association and
Swedish Waste Management on Wednesday, 25 November
2015 at the Clarion Hotel Post in Gothenburg for both private
and municipal stakeholders.
Gästrike återvinnare was awarded the prize with special
recognition for the following:
This year’s Special Prize is awarded to a stakeholder which has
achieved much more than is customary. The winner has contri-
buted to ecological and socially sustainable development and
created many contacts both regionally and globally. Other
positive results include contributing to a better environment
and positive social development.
This year’s Special Prize winner has also built an excellent and
renowned reputation for both itself and Sweden as a country.
