The Furniture Reuse Network has been shortlisted for the MRW National Recycling Awards 2016. We are now a finalist in the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Innovation Category.
When the FRN saw this category, we instantly knew we could really be in for a chance if we presented the FRN WEEE TakeBack Scheme with DixonsCarphone DHL. The scheme, which sees FRN members collecting WEEE takeback from DixonsCarphone platforms, ensures that 10% of all DixonsCarphone WEEE takeback is reused, therefore reducing waste whilst providing low cost quality reusable items to those vulnerable families and individuals who can't afford new items at the same time. It is very exciting to have been shortlisted and to have been given the opportunity to present the FRN WEEE Takeback scheme to a panel of judges.
We would also like to congratulate FRN members who have also been shortlisted for various other categories. We wish you all the very best of luck. You definitely deserve it.
Winner for all categories will be announced at the Awards Dinner on the evening of Wednesday 6th July 2016.
