RWM - Looking forward to next year

On the 11th and 12th September, tens of thousands of business decision makers travelled to the NEC for RWM 2019. Amongst the crowd were representatives from 83% of UK local authorities.

With over 500 exhibitors to see, 13 seminar theatres to visit, and zones to discover, there was never a dull moment.

Sworn to secrecy from the businesses involved, RWM played host to an impressive array of product launches, from some of the best-known businesses in the industry. Ranging from municipal sweepers to waste pressers, there were a wide range of new products revealed to the UK’s largest recycling and waste management exhibition.

The seminar lineup was unlike what has been seen before. There were speakers from internationally renowned organisations such as: NASA, Procter & Gamble, SUEZ, and Costa Coffee.

Jeremy Paxman, Patron of Clean up Britain, and Tom Szaky, CEO/Founder of TerraCycle delivered some of the most captivating keynote seminars at the event, attracting huge crowds in the process.

Above all else, the role of RWM in the industry is to educate a wide range of businesses about new sustainable practices and technologies that will help save their business money whilst also becoming increasingly environmentally friendly.

If RWM 2019 is anything to go off, 2020 promises to be phenomenal. Dates have been confirmed as Wednesday 16th and Thursday 17th of September 2020, at the NEC Birmingham - make sure you register for free tickets at, keep up to date with the official newsletter, and book the time off!
