National Civic Amenity Site Conference 2015

Solihull, Midlands
Wednesday, 15 July 2015

Time is running out for the UK to meet its 50% by 2020 recycling target, and, with government cuts continuing to bite, it is now as important as ever for local authorities to ensure that their services are running as efficiently as possible. With new laws also having been brought in by Eric Pickles’ Department for Communities and Local Government this year banning charging at CA sites, local authorities are having to be more creative in finding ways to keep services running smoothly.

Join us for the National Civic Amenity Site Conference 2015, where we will discuss all of these issues, as well as examining changes to waste composition, cutting costs and improving services, dealing with trade waste improving security, and reuse on sites.

The Conference will draw on real-life case studies of good practice in household waste and recycling centre (HWRC) management and provide delegates with an overview of how to improve performance and cut costs whilst still providing a good quality service.

This year's NCAS Conference includes an afternoon site visit to the acclaimed Lower House Farm HWRC whose 3,000 square foot re-use shop was featured live on BBC TV's Breakfast. Honoured in no fewer than seven national award schemes including the National Procurement Awards and the Public Sector Sustainability Awards, the £3.5 million facility has been developed jointly by Warwickshire County Council and Staffordshire County Council.
