Speaking on the announcement the Minister said: “Waste is an extremely valuable resource and we can no longer afford to ignore this value. The fact that £5 million has been secured for recycling in the current financial climate demonstrates that waste is a very important asset for the Northern Ireland economy.
“The 16 recipients named today have been successful because they have identified how to divert waste from landfill and ultimately save ratepayers money. This is not only good for the economy but has tremendous environmental benefits.” Quelle: Northern Ireland Executive
