At the CIWM Professional Awards, held at the end of May,
Greenstar was awarded the PEEL People’s Cup 2008.
Greenstar received this prestigious award - which recognises
excellence in operational teamwork on site - for the Ballynagran
Landfill in County Wicklow.
Operated by Greenstar, the site was found to be well equipped,
with an excellent relationship between contract staff and
Greenstar staff, as well as a strong social element. With
Greenstar support, the staff work with the local community
to provide activities such as football coaching and life boat
duties and morale on site is very high, accompanied by a high
standard of operational performance.
This is the first occasion in the 20-year history of the
PEEL People’s Cup that it was awarded to a facility in Ireland.
The runners-up in 2008 were Integra North Waste to Energy
Facility in Hampshire operated by Veolia and Coventry and
Solihull Waste to Energy Facility in Coventry operated by
Coventry and Solihull Waste Disposal Company.
