What are the Creating the Greenest County Awards?
The Creating the Greenest County Awards honour the accomplishments of individuals, businesses, schools, communities, and organisations in Suffolk dedicated to safeguarding the environment and diminishing carbon emissions.
Organised by Suffolk County Council, these awards acknowledge the highly valuable environmental initiatives taking place across Suffolk. By fostering collaboration, exchanging ideas, and inspiring each other, the awards aim to highlight and celebrate the commendable efforts contributing to environmental protection in the region.
This is the 13th year of the awards and in particular this year councillors hope to engage and inspire the farming community.
Councillor Richard Rout, Suffolk County Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance and Environment, said of the awards:
“Every time we run these awards, it’s a joy to discover the work of local businesses, schools and communities who commit so much energy to protect our environment and help make Suffolk an even better place to live.
“This year, I’d particularly welcome nominations that recognise the fantastic work that takes place in the county’s agriculture and agribusiness sectors. We’re extremely proud of Suffolk’s rural nature and would like to celebrate the sustainable practices among our county's diverse agricultural and food production community.
“As a county and country, if we’re to meet the challenge of adapting to a changing climate and protect our environment, we need to collaborate and address these issues that face us all. Our awards will recognise those who are doing just that.”
What Ways Are Assington Helping the Environment?
At Assington Autos we are committed to continuously improving our working practices to be more eco-friendly.
This year we replaced all our disc cutters with battery-powered equipment to better improve our environmental standards. They can now be charged and perform the same tasks as our, previously, petrol-powered disc cutters but with the added benefit of being switched off when not in use. Read more about our switch to battery-powered disc cutters here.
We also work to recycle as much of any scrap metal as possible. Our breakers are constantly working to break down scrap cars so they are recycled in an environmentally friendly and responsible way.
If you have a scrap car in Cambridgeshire, Essex or Suffolk we can pick it up from you and start the recycling process.
Contact our team today and scrap your car with Assignton Autos.
