Johnston Sweepers was pleased to sponsor Local Authority of the Year Award at Keep Britain Tidy Network last week, held at prestigious venue Hilton Hotel Leeds City Centre. The winner was Durham County Council who dedicated to improving, enhancing and protecting their environment, despite financial cuts. This council has developed a range of projects and campaigns to change people’s behaviour, including one aimed at students which sent 1.5 tonnes of reusable household items to charity shops instead of landfill.
The Keep Britain Tidy Awards celebrate the achievements of local authorities, businesses and land managers in improving the quality of our public space through campaigns, innovations and partnerships. In total, nine Awards were handed out for everything from Recycling Campaign of the Year to Local Authority of the Year. Many congratulations to all the winners and finalists.
