In addition to the announcement of the awards categories, Valebridge Media Services has also revealed updated details of how the nominations process for the Recircle Awards 2022 will work. 

David Wilson, Managing Director of Valebridge Media Services, explains; “Once again, anyone within the tyre retreading and recycling sectors is entitled to nominate a company, product or person for a Recircle Award, and if you feel your company deserves to be recognised, we actively encourage you to invite your customers and associates to tell us why. 

“Nominations can be made via the nominations form on the Recircle Awards website. You can make nominations in as many or as few of the award categories as you like, although the process allows for just one nomination per person/email address in each category. 

When making a nomination you will be asked to give a reason for the nomination, and this will be analysed by the Nominations Committee as part of the process of selecting the shortlist for the Awards.” 

Nominations for the Recircle Awards will close on November 5, 2021, and the shortlist will be announced on Wednesday, December 1, 2021. 

The shortlist of nominees will once again be selected by a specially constituted Nominations Committee, which this year is being extended from 10 to 15 people. This independent committee will consist of the respective editors of Retreading Business and Tyre & Rubber Recycling plus a further thirteen individuals from the global tyre retreading and recycling industries selected according to their independent status and their acknowledged expertise within their respective fields. 

The 2022 Nominations Committee is scheduled to be announced on Monday November 8, 2021.
