Silverwoods Waste Management triumphs at Red Rose Awards 2019

Silverwoods Waste Management has been crowned the best Innovative Business and Small Business in the region, collecting custom-made trophies in front of more than 1,000 of their peers at the Red Rose Awards 2019.

The Red Rose Awards, organised by Lancashire Business View magazine, are held in Blackpool’s iconic Winter Gardens each year, and honour the best, most inspirational and most innovative businesses operating in Lancashire.

To earn the honour, Silverwoods Waste Management triumphed over tough competition: first being selected out of hundreds of nominations from throughout the county to a competitive shortlist, then impressing a panel of judges with a presentation and rigorous interview.

Julian Silverwood said: “Well, that went rather well, to be awarded the Innovation and Small Business Awards is just fabulous news. Like any other business our operations can be challenging at times but we  have a great team and  with the introduction of 3 new contracts over the next few months the future is looking very good.”

Event founder Richard Slater, also the publisher of Lancashire Business View magazine, said:

“Silverwoods Waste Management can be exceptionally proud of their achievement - Lancashire is a booming county home to thousands of headline-grabbing businesses with excellent stories, and the Red Rose Awards is the biggest event celebrating their achievements. To stand out in a crowded field is a true testament of ingenuity, hard work and doing things the right way.”

The diversity of the business and the multiple revenue streams which have been created are as impressive as its ability to convert ideas and concepts into action.
