International Women’s Day

Today we celebrate International Women’s Day 2023 (IWD).

IWD is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

From laws preventing women working in specific jobs, to stereotyping of gender roles and abilities, historically the metal Recycling and Waste sectors were inhospitable environments for women to enter and progress careers. Long overdue change is now happening in the industry, but there is still much work to be done.

Recycling Management Ltd is owned and run by Yvonne Manders. Yvonne has over 30 years’ experience in the Scrap Metal and Total Waste Management sector and first hand knows how far the industry has come in terms of stereotyping women’s roles and abilities.
As more and more women choose to pursue careers in the industry, we here; at Recycling Management have a team of wonderful women who choose to work in the Recycling and Waste sector and excel in their jobs every single day.

Recycling Management Ltd is not only devoted to supporting women, but also every other employee regardless their gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, or religion. We nurture a work environment where difference is not only accepted, but also valued and supported.
