Alison Price SoilCyclers WE Empower Awardee

Alison Price is the Founder and Managing Director of SoilCyclers, a business working with construction, waste and mining industry clients to recycle unsuitable materials on their sites and transform them into materials they can use in their projects. Their mission is to make onsite recycling 'business as usual' for these industries by providing innovative, cost-effective and planet-saving solutions that reduce the use of virgin resources, avoid the risk of importing contamination to sites and transform onsite waste into reusable materials. Each year, they recycle around half a million cubic meters of soil and take about 30,000 truckloads of waste off local roads. The business also creates high paying jobs for women and young people in a traditionally male-dominated industry through their Trainee Plant Operator program.
