LARAC Office
LARAC has been successful in imparting the LA view to government in many different ways over the last few months.   We have been active on behalf of our members in preparations for the Waste Strategy, in the consultations afterwards, in giving evidence to Hoc Committies and in more recently in regular meetings with Defra.  In the reports which follow members will be able to see the influence that LARAC evidence has had.

Hundreds of local authority officers and waste management specialists were in Birmingham last week for the annual LARAC conference. WRAP was no exception, and we were delighted to be hosting two workshops this year.

With the Resources and Waste strategy on the horizon, we ran an interactive pub quiz-style session to test and broaden your knowledge on how the strategy could impact your local authority.
