The second joint CIWM and LARAC open meeting will be held on Friday 17th November at Saica Paper, 144 Manchester Road, Carrington, M31 4QN.
It may already seem like a lifetime ago, but it was only a matter of days that we were in Nottingham for the annual UK LARAC Conference. As always, those two days flew by; we packed a lot of content into the programme. The last few years have seen an evolution of the event and we feel the mix of high level and detail, case studies and industry viewpoints and kicking off day two with the workshops is about right and what you want to see and experience. Planning the conference is a bit like painting the Forth Bridge.
LARAC has given evidence, on behalf of its members, in front of the House of Commons Environment Audit Committee for their inquiry into plastic bottle and coffee cup recycling. LARAC had submitted written evidence in April this year and were invited to attend a session of the panel to provide more details on its stance on the subject.
This summer we were delighted to work with Cityclean at Brighton & Hove Council to launch its new litter campaign #StreetsAhead. Here are our top highlights so far.
For many, Brighton & Hove is their playground of choice with a hugely diverse cultural offer and a buzzing seaside. But with 8.5 million visitors each year and 4 tonnes of rubbish being cleared from the beaches daily in the summer, the litter problem is unmissable.
