Simply Waste Solutions visited the RWM Exhibition 2017 at the NEC Birmingham. RWM is the UK leading community for the Waste, Energy, Recycling and Water sectors to network, learn and trade.
There were several seminars including one by Marcus Gover, Chief Executive of WRAP discussing the future of food waste, as currently “around 60% of food waste is avoidable”. WRAP has a target to reduce food waste by 20% by 2025, they are planning on doing this by targeting specific groups, revising packaging alongside other methods.
Several Simply Waste employees attended to network and catch up with our suppliers and business affiliates such as VWS (Vehicle Weighing Solutions), Waste Logics, Countrystyle Recycling and Webber.
In the outdoor area, there was a ‘ride and drive’ area to test out the latest waste management equipment and vehicles. Inside there was a ‘pitch & pint’ area to play a round of mini-golf with colleagues as well as networking cafes and several interactive attractions.
