The winners of the 25th anniversary LGC Awards have been announced!
Abbey Road Reuse & Recycling Centre staff from West London Waste Authority was announced as the deserving winner of the Team of the Year (small) at the LGC Awards 2021.
More than 1,100 local authority professionals last night gathered at Grosvenor House, London to celebrate the very best in local government.
The LGC Awards are the biggest and best ceremony recognising the achievements of officers and politicians in local government – and last night’s ceremony was the 25th time the Local Government Chronicle event has been held.
The LGC Awards see entries from council teams across the UK judged by other councils’ senior officers, with the aim being to promote new innovation that can inspire other councils to improve their own services.
Actress, television presenter and comedian Sally Phillips was LGC’s presenter as winners were announced including Council of the Year, Hounslow LBC.
After excelling during the rigorous judging process, West London Waste Authority emerged as the winner of Team of the Year (Small) category. The judges said “Hugely impressive team that brought about a transformation in their service during the Covid pandemic for recycling and repurposing of waste for their local community and to address climate change goals. We loved the way they were changing the perceptions of the team and their customers that waste is a resource and has a social value working with community organisations who are upcycling.”
LGC editor Nick Golding said:
“The dedication of councils to supporting their local populations has never been in doubt but they have stepped up to a new level over the course of the pandemic as they innovated to keep residents safe and well.
“To win an LGC Award is the ultimate symbol of the brilliance of council teams – we should be grateful for their work, particularly in difficult times.
