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 Återvinnare. 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.
