Cornwall’s waste system tour and policy landscape discussion with Suez

October 22 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm

Join Tevi and Suez for an online tour of Cornwall’s waste facilities and an interactive discussion on commercial waste policies and futures.

Introduction

Increasingly greater attention is being paid to waste management, and pro-active organizations are seeing the benefits of establishing a waste reduction program. Reducing commercial waste and effectively utilising ‘waste’ resources provides significant potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving our use of natural resources, as well as cutting costs associated with waste disposal.

Hosted by Tevi alongside Suez, this session will provide participants with the opportunity to hear how waste is managed across Cornwall, with a particular focus on the mixed recycling and energy from waste facilities. Following this online tour, Suez will share commercial waste best practice, and upcoming changes to the waste policy landscape.

  • 1.45pm Cornwall’s waste management infrastructure, Natalie Chard (Suez)
