PREVIOUS RWM DIGITAL SPOTLIGHT SESSIONS

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
Streamed: Thursday 22nd April 2021

EPR will make producers responsible for the end-of-life costs of their products. This legislation aims to ensure products and packaging are reused, repaired and recycled to start shaping a more circular economy.

With consultations ongoing and implementation scheduled for 2023, this RWM Digital Spotlight on EPR will explore what this might mean for local councils, waste management companies and waste producers. 

Topics to include: 

  • An examination of EPR, summary overview of the key points in the EPR consultation.

  • EPR, the opportunity to get it right or the threat of getting it wrong.

  • Reporting on the findings of the PackFlow Report. Valpak Consulting will explain how different materials markets will be impacted by EPR legislation and the likely changes we will see in industry as well as the options with the best outcomes.

  • Future-proofing packaging data - how managing packaging data is important to track improvements companies can make.

  • EPR is Coming – what does it mean for producers?

DECARBONISING THE WASTE FLEET
Streamed: Wednesday 16th September 2020


The race is on to decarbonise council operations across the UK, with 67% of councils having declared a climate emergency and the government’s commitments to Net Zero by 2050. As local authorities look to tackle emissions and air pollution, attention has turned to the waste collection rounds still reliant on refuse collection vehicles (RCVs) that are powered by diesel-fuelled engines. It is a well-known fact that alternatives to the traditional diesel RCVs are going to be a considerable piece of this jigsaw.
