Recycling Lives wins second Queens Award
Skip Hire Network’s parent company- Recycling Lives– has scooped a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development.
Recycling Lives first won the prestigious award in 2010, presented by the Lord-Lieutenant of Lancashire, Lord Shuttleworth, who went on to become patron of the Recycling Lives charity. In April 2014, Recycling Lives received the award for the second time. On this occasion, it was the company’s innovative Flat Panel Display recycling and employment project at HMP Kirkham that impressed the judging panel.
The project at HMP Kirkham involves a dedicated recycling centre at the prison, where offenders can build skills and work experience dismantling FPD units. Upon release, ex-offenders may be offered a place in Recycling Lives’ charity residential scheme, providing accommodation, education, training and work experience as part of a Personal Development Plan towards employment and independent living. There is even the possibility of full time employment with Recycling Lives. Employment is widely recognised as the primary factor in preventing re-offending.
