British Glass will be one of the key trade associations to exhibit at the launch of The Recycling Event.
The inaugural event will take place on 2 July 2019 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry and will see a number of trade associations from across the wider recycling sector shape the concept of the event.
Other trade associations attending the event are:
- The Recycling Association
- Confederation of Paper Industries
- Resource Association
- Wood Recyclers Association
- Industry Council for Packaging and the Environment (INCPEN).
The event will include four content theatres that will see a range of seminars and discussions on different topics including:
- Environment: for love or money? Theatre – dedicated to looking at examples of whether it is better to treat recycling and the environment as a market-based system or as the right thing to do
- The Delivery Theatre – a theatre looking at how we deliver the Resources and Waste Strategy and Circular Economy Package
- A Design for Lifecycle Theatre – how we design products for recyclability and the conditions necessary for using more recycled content will be looked at in this theatre
- The Market Intelligence Theatre – seminars and presentations dedicated to current market conditions and end destinations will be hosted in this theatre.
As well as this, there will also be networking opportunities throughout the day.
