Our Business Development Manager, David Harding attended the London Conference, held by Let’s Recycle.com and Resource London. This year's conference focused on the city`s integrated Environment Strategy - aimed at tackling challenges faced in moving towards a ‘greener and cleaner’ city - as well as Defra’s Resources & Waste Strategy.
Opened by Deputy Mayor for the Environment, Shirley Rodriguez and Defra Senior Official, Melanie Foster – the conference covered key areas of the Resources and Waste Strategy, including the Packaging Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) system, a Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) and improving the Consistency of waste collections.
Speakers were well represented across the sector and led sessions that covered; recycling challenges facing inner London flats, Reuse and Recycling Plans (RRPs) as well as collaboration between local authorities and business around the circular economy.
As a leading Compliance Scheme, ERP has worked with local authorities and businesses based in London and the South East of England - to support them in addressing their current and future needs.
We are well positioned to advise and provide solutions on:
- Extended Producer Responsibility (pending changes with the Packaging system and its various materials streams)
- Other areas of EPR, such as `Battery Recycling` for local authorities (and households), and `Household WEEE collections` (particularly Kerbside)
- Pursuing a Circular Economy model
