A SITA UK employee working at a Northumberland composting site has been given special recognition for the quality of his work.
Richard Brown, aged 36 and from Morpeth, is the manager of the Green Composting site located at the Ellington Road facility near Ashington. He has been at the heart of developing the site and ensuring its safe working operation.
The award is presented by SITA Organics, part of SITA UK, to the best managed company composting facility following a monthly inspection and regular communication with facilities across the country. Andrew Finney, SITA Organics Technical Manager for the North carried out the inspections and provided technical support to Richard.
He said: “The award recognises the hard work undertaken by all the staff at Ellington but particularly singles out Richard for achieving a significant and sustained improvement in the way the site is operated and managed, and the quality of the compost produced”.
