The Emily Jordan Foundation staff member awarded for recycling achievement

The Emily Jordan Foundation trainee Stephen Eades has received a national recycling award for his outstanding work in recycling and raising funds for The Emily Jordan Foundation.

Trainee Stephen Eades, has received an Every Can Counts Green Can Award after collecting, sorting and crushing thousands of cans in a bid to increase drinks can recycling rates within Stourport and the surrounding areas.

Go Green recycled 6 ton last year and increased its customer base to now over 200 collections from local businesses, pubs, clubs and individual households. Stephen and a team of trainees continue to make an invaluable contribution to local recycling in the area.

Presenting the award Claire Watkins of Every Can Counts says “It was an honour to present Stephen with a Green Can Award, marking his achievements and commitment to recycling. The Emily Jordan Foundation is a fantastic example of how collecting and recycling drinks cans not only generates much needed funds it also makes a significant contribution to the environment”.

Wendy Edge, Recycling Manager at ‘Go Green’ says “Stephen regularly goes out on the van with staff collecting recycling materials, in-particular drinks cans. He delivers collection boxes and leaflets to new and potential customers. Stephen is proud to tell everyone about his job recycling, especially about crushing the cans.  He is dedicated and passionate about his role”.
