The Deep is part of an exciting new collective of organisations called the Humber Waste Alliance, with the aim of reducing waste in the Humber region and its impact on the environment.
Alongside partners including Yorkshire Water, ABP, Siemens Gamesa, University of Hull, Reckitt Benckiser, Hull City Council, Smith & Nephew, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Biffa, Canal & Rivers Trust, Bishop Burton College, British Divers Marine Life Rescue, Humber Nature Partnership, The Spencer Group, Arco and more... this consortium is leading the fight against waste.
The Humber Waste Alliance aim to reduce waste to prevent marine litter polluting the Humber region and its impact on the environment. Current initiatives the group are promoting include replacing products with eco-friendly alternatives, advocating changing practices in organisations and working with environmental groups to understand new threats to our water ways to name but a few. The group has a strong desire to improve individual credentials and aspire to lead the region as an area of excellence.
2019 saw the group receive their first award at CATCH (an industry led partnership supporting the process, energy, engineering and renewable industries in Yorkshire and Humber) Awards for Best Partnership. This special award celebrates the Humber Waste Alliance Initiative and those organisations actively involved who are making a real difference in the local community.
The Humber Waste Alliance goes from strength to strength and continues to be proactive ambassadors for businesses in the region. Further initiatives are planned this year including a waste conference in November.
