It’s time to vote for your Legends of Waste in this year’s Hot 100!
Who across the waste and resources world has done enough to etch their name into the pantheon of greats as this year’s Legend of Waste? It's time for you to tell us!
Now in its 16th year, Resource magazine's Hot 100 is a list of the 100 most influential, creative and simply important people that have made a key difference to the way our precious natural resources are being managed and protected.
Voting for this year's Hot 100 is now open, giving you the chance to nominate and vote for those you think need to be on the list.
Whose Herculean efforts deserve to go down in waste and resources history? Whose Olympian achievements are the stuff of waste legend?
Last year, Mike Webster, Chief Executive of the waste management charity WasteAid UK, came out on top, winning admirers for his tireless work in bringing low-cost waste solutions to marginalised communities around the world to allow them to turn waste into a resource and protect their environment.
2018’s Hot 100 saw a record number of votes, with the Top 10 once again an illustration of the plurality of talents in the industry and the different scales, both large and small, on which progress can be made in tackling the world’s waste problem.
So, with another eventful twelve months almost behind us, who will be this year's Legend of Waste?
