Newton receives two award nominations for unique recycling scheme

  • 18 Sep 2019

Newton has recently been shortlisted at both the BITA Gala Award Ceremony and the London Construction Awards, for the Charles Darwin Award and Sustainable Construction Award respectively.

The BITA Gala Award Ceremony

As a first-year member of the British and Irish Trading Alliance (or BITA), Newton are proud to be recognised as a finalist for the Charles Darwin Award, going head to head with Geberit Sales Ltd and Innovative Safety Systems Ltd. The award recognises companies that have successfully introduced a new product, service or process in response to a changing landscape.

As a non-profit making organisation, BITA aims to help its members generate business by encouraging them to build relationships through networking, educational and social events held in both the UK and Ireland. As a new member, Newton is pleased to have joined such a diverse organisation with experienced business owners and professionals from a wide range of industries and sectors.

The award ceremony is being held at the BITA Gala Ball on Saturday 19 th October at the Savoy Hotel in London. Newton’s Managing Director, Warren, and Technical Director, Richard, will be in attendance on the night.

The London Construction Awards

The Sustainable Construction Award at the prestigious London Construction Awards recognises Newton’s effective closed-loop recycling service. 

Created to recognise the achievements, developments and innovations of companies in the booming London construction industry, there are a wide range of categories at the London Construction Awards for solution providers, contractors, architects, civil engineers, developers and local authorities.

The London Construction Awards Ceremony is being held on 27th November at the Novotel West London and will be hosted by popular impersonator, Allistair McGowan. Our Commercial Director Toby, and Technical Director Rich, will be attending the exciting event.

Both the accolades that Newton have been shortlisted for highlight the successes of the Newton Membrane Recycling Scheme. Launched in 2017, the service is the first and only recycling service of its kind in the UK waterproofing industry.

The service operates via Newton’s nationwide network of Specialist Contractors, who collect the HDPE off-cuts and waste membrane, back-loading Newton’s delivery vehicles when we deliver to site and bringing the waste back to our Tonbridge warehouse. Once here, it is shredded in an industrial granulator, then collected for recycling by a third-party in brand new construction products. Since the scheme began, the Newton Membrane Recycling Scheme has successfully prevented over 12 tonnes of HDPE membrane from going to landfill.
