      Cleaner, greener and smarter cities

      Cities worldwide are wasting large resources emptying half-empty bins, while others overflow, becoming target for illegal dumping and ending up requiring additional services like street cleaning. The fact is that waste collection has not changed since its inception and bins are still emptied on static schedules whether they are full or empty, which we now know results in a huge portion of pickups collecting air rather than waste.


      12.30 - 13.00

      David Howarth

      What does Bsi PAS 13 mean for my warehouse?

      Health and safety statistics show that approximately 50 people are killed each year and more than 5,000 are injured in accidents involving workplace transport. Mixing Vehicles and pedestrians increase the risk of potential accidents, so it is imperative that steps are taken to minimize the associated risks by using PAS 13 as a guidance tool when assesing warehouse traffic management.


      13.15 - 13.45

      David Lowe

      Modern Day Use of barges, especially in the recycling business.

      Modern barges can carry 500 tonnes each – and more. They can take traffic off congested roads. Due to their fuel efficiency, they produce far less pollution than lorries. So using barges helps meet corporate social responsibility targets. Most of the UK ports are served by major inland waterways and so are well placed for exports/imports. The speaker will discuss the opportunities in the recycling and waste industry.


      14.00 - 14.30
