Nelson and Colne College 'highly commended' at awards

NELSON and Colne College’s sustainability effort achieved a ‘highly commended’ at the Green Gown Awards.

Now in their 9th year, the awards recognise the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges across the UK.

The college received a highly commended award in the category of Technical Innovation for Sustainability.

Over the year, 12 tonnes of paper has been diverted from landfill and has saved the college more than £2,000 in waste disposal costs.

The activity also provides team building experiences in a working environment for the GAP students and helps develop their numeracy skills including weighing, measuring and counting.
