Finalists in 2018 for the National Awards of Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management


Local reuse charity Frade has been recognised nationally for its performance.

Frade was shortlisted to the last four at the National Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management.


Christine Garcia, Chief Officer for Frade said;

“We are very proud of being nominated for ‘The Best Community Recycling Intiative’ and getting through as one of the four finalists.  We are a local charity serving the Tees Valley and are passionate about improving the environment”.


Last year Frade diverted 257 tonnes of material away from Landfill, ensuring it was refurbished and reused as appropriate. This helped many households across our region turn a house into a home.



Christine went on;

“It is an exciting time for us as we are strengthening our partnerships with Local Authorities to divert more product away from landfill and back into the community to help those most in need.”




FRADE has come a long way since its foundation in 1990.

There are 3 shops in Stockton, Middlesbrough, and Darlington serving the Tees Valley community.


FRADE’s purpose is poverty reduction, waste reduction and offering employment/training and volunteer opportunities to people from the local community.


Last year FRADE helped 11,028 households, provided 32 volunteer placements, employed 10 staff and redirected 257 tonnes away from landfill.  They collect donations free of charge.
