Independent, north London-based waste management company O’Donovan Waste has won two Federation of Small Business (FSB) Awards to add to its already somewhat packed trophy cabinet.
The Tottenham-based, family-owned company won the Green Impact and the Training and Development Awards at the event, the fifth of its kind, held at the Emirates Stadium.
Presenting the Awards the organisers hailed O’Donovan Waste for its commitment to good environmental practices, systems and procedures to reduce any harmful impact on the environment and its work towards making a positive impact on its workforce, local community and environment.
They also praised the company for its Training and Development and its investment and commitment to the education of their employees.

“We invest significant time and resources to ensure that our team have the knowledge they need to undertake their job above and beyond the standards that are expected by the industry.
“We are proud to be awarded for our efforts in the ongoing development of our team and our dedication to best environmental practice in our industry.”
Steve Warwick, London Regional Chair of the Federation of Small Businesses, said: “We were thrilled with the quality and quantity of entrants this year.
“To win any category was a remarkable achievement considering the incredible talent possessed by all the finalists.”
