Sixteen awards were presented at the event which was hosted by presenter and mathematician Rachel Riley, with a keynote address from Barry Sheerman, MP for Huddersfield, founding member of the All Party Sustainable Resource Group and a former chair of the Education and Skills Select Committee.

Our Soft Furnishings Deconstruction project focuses on deconstructing items like chairs and sofa’s to their component parts to ensure they are all recyclable, and those identified for reuse are cleaned, repaired and recycled back into the community.

Since the programme began we have deconstructed more than 6,300 items, diverted almost 270 tonnes from landfill and recycled over 6,800 items (205 tonnes) - as well as delivering a recycling awareness campaign at all of the Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) in Flintshire.
