Bury Market has won a Green Apple environment award in a campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities.
More than 500 nominations were received for the awards, and market bosses will be presented with their trophy and certificate at Westminster Palace on 12 November.
Their work will also be published in The Green Book, a leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their achievement.
The market could also progress to represent England in the Green World Awards 2019 and have 100 trees planted in its name as part of the United Nations Billion Trees Initiative.
The awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.
Markets manager Andrew Heyes said: “In recent years we have implemented a wide number of schemes to improve our environmental performance and reduce expenditure. We will continue with this work, for which we are delighted has been recognised at national level.”
