"Green IT at Work Award"


Green IT at Work Award

The "Green IT at Work" Awards were launched in 2007 to recognise Calderdale businesses, schools and other organisations who have reduced their impact on the environment throughout the year by ensuring the ethical disposal of their unwanted IT equipment rather than disposing of in landfill.

The award-winners are chosen by the Trustees of the Ground Floor Project, a local charity with an outstanding record in setting up and running local environmental initiatives having established the cardboard recycling and training scheme, Pennine Magpie; the Scrap for Play scrapstore; supported the establishment of the Hebden Bridge Alternative Technology Centre which has gone on to set up numerous environmental initiatives themselves and the original Kerbside recycling scheme amongst other local environmental initiatives.

Winners are selected from all businesses and organisations within Calderdale who have ensured their unwanted IT equipment was ethically disposed of in full accordance with the Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006 through a REI-recognised and Environmental Agency-approved organisation.

The Regional Electronics Initiative (REI) is a not for profit network of independent computer refurbishment centres across Yorkshire and Humberside, who are recognised as delivering a high quality recycling service to businesses.
