Ward scoops Waste Supplier of the Year Award

Derbyshire-based metal recycling and waste management specialist Ward is celebrating winning Waste Supplier of the Year at this year’s British Demolition Awards. 

Now in their fourth year, the Awards recognise the foremost national and international players in the demolition industry and celebrate the sector’s achievements both in the UK and further afield. 

The winners were announced during a special ceremony held on September 2nd at Leicester’s King Power Stadium. 

When announcing Ward’s win, the judges highlighted the firm’s commitment to processing both waste materials and scrap metal, offering a total recycling solution to the demolition sector. In addition to Ward’s comprehensive service provision, the firm’s substantial global export operation was also highly commended. 

A spokesperson from the judging panel said:

“Processing c.1,000,000 tonnes of materials annually, Ward recycles products such as metals, plastics, glass, cardboard, wood, textiles, soils, and hardcore to ensure its demolition customers fulfil their environmental regulations.

Ward has progressed over a number of years from collecting and receiving scrap from demolition projects close to its original site in Burton to operating nationwide. The business now receives enquiries from all over the UK, Europe and the Far East as a testament to its growing status as a progressive and innovative partner to demolition companies.” 

Commercial Director at Ward, David Ward Jnr, said:

“It’s an honour to receive this award and be recognised among such esteemed members of the demolition community. 

We’ve worked hard over the years to drive a significant period of growth for the firm and are proud that our efforts have paid off. We now work across a network of nationwide demolition sites to support the industry with effective waste management, and we have ambitious targets for our expanding export business. To be acknowledged as a trusted demolition industry partner in this way is incredibly humbling.”

As a part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability, Ward also sponsored the Environmental Innovation Award, which was won by family-owned and operated specialist contractor Cawarden.
