Edinburgh Airport cleaned up at an awards night.
The airport and Specialist Waste Recycling were winners of the Best Food Waste Collection System at the ABDA Industry Awards.
Chief executive Gordon Dewar said: “We are absolutely committed to leading the way when it comes to waste management and this award is a great reflection of the whole team’s commitment to delivering on and exceeding in our environmental responsibilities.”
The awards, now in their fifth year, recognise the innovation and achievement across all sectors of the anaerobic digestion and biogas industry in the UK.
The judge said the project demonstrated the key traits that innovative food waste collection systems will need to develop in order to advance the UKs national agenda.
SWR has worked with Edinburgh Airport for five years and introduced food waste collections and Recycling Officers who take responsibility for managing and processing all waste across the estate.
