Leicestershire based FSB members and waste management company, Bakers Waste Services, are celebrating winning two awards at the annual Niche Business Awards.
The first award won on the night for Bakers Waste Services was the Eco Business award. This recognised the company’s efforts towards recycling, reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill and their endeavours to educate others on how they can protect the environment for future generations.
Being presented with this award is a recognition for the investment Bakers Waste have put in to being an environmentally friendly business. From investing in the latest vehicles to reduce emissions to introducing energy efficient lighting, reducing the amount of paperwork by moving operations online and installing solar panels to their new Leicester head office, the company are committed to doing their bit for the environment.
The second award for the company saw founder and director Paul Baker win the prestigious title of Businessman of the Year. Amongst tough competition, Mr Baker came out on top to claim the prize in recognition of the hard work he has and continues to put in to building Bakers Waste and the services offered to customers across Leicestershire and beyond.
Celebrating their 15th Anniversary in 2017, this is a timely award for Mr Baker to win, not only recognising the work he has put in over the course of the last year but his success in growing the company over the last 15 years to be one of the leading waste management providers in Leicestershire.
On the two awards, Director Paul Baker said the following: “It’s great to get this recognition and win the two awards, we’ve invested a lot into the business over the years and have a great team, so this is a reward for all their hard work in helping us get to where we are today.”
