Collection Yard of the Year Competition
ASEKOL organised this competition in 2013 with the objective to reward the best collection yard of the more than 1,160 present in the Czech Republic.
Collection yards could enter the competition in one of two categories for Best Collection Yard:
- for municipalities with up to 10,000 inhabitants with a financial reward of CZK 30,000, and
- for municipalities with more than 10,000 inhabitants with a financial reward of CZK 70,000.
The winners were decided by public voting. The number of commodities collected by the collection yards and the amounts of electrical and electronic equipment collected were also taken into consideration. According to voters on the website www.sberne-dvory.cz, the evaluation criteria were best fulfilled by two collection yards.
The winner of the category for municipalities with more than 10,000 inhabitants was the collection yard on Průmyslová street in Uherské Hradiště, which will receive from ASEKOL a grant of CZK 70,000. Among municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants, the winner was the collection yard on V jamách street in Němčovice in the Pilsen Region. It will receive a grant of CZK 30,000. These rewards will be used further to improve the winning collection points and to increase the quality of services for residents.
