Zest Recycle

We are delighted to have been Highly Commended at the Waste2Zero Awards 2023 for Best Waste Project Communication & Engagement Award.  

This award was a great opportunity to showcase our work with Blackrose Pubs as we collaborated to increase recycling rates, rationalise the existing service to reduce waste and introduce a local and regional approach that supported their ethos of local community support.  

Our collaboration achieved incredible results: 

  • Increased recycling from 40% to 85% inside the first 3 months 
  • Delivered Zero Waste to Landfill 
  • Serviced 100% of the estate with local and regional SMEs 
  • Reduction in waste of 1.9 tonnes p/a 
  • Bespoke on-site instructional posters encouraging ownership and buy-in of the new programme from all Blackrose employees.

We’re so proud of our partnership with Blackrose Pubs, delivering fantastic results and creating a positive change in the local area. Our bespoke training and engagement campaign more than doubled the recycling rate from 40% to 85%. An excellent example of waste project communication and stakeholder engagement.

Cymbeline Leadbitter, Account Director, Zest Recycle

Great example of engaging directly with a client base to create positive outcomes.

The recycling rate is incredible, and the improvement in just 12 months can’t be achieved without real engagement at site, region, and group level.

Zest has made impressive strides in increasing recycling rates and reducing waste for Blackrose Pubs. Their engagement campaign and collaboration with the pubs have yielded positive results and demonstrated effective communication and stakeholder engagement.

Very impressive concerted effort to reduce waste across estate.

Really good to see a hands on approach from the waste management sector. Engaging with staff to improve knowledge and create understanding about how individuals on the ground can make a difference is the cornerstone of improvements in reducing waste.
