Waste management and recycling is an important topic, especially when it comes to the world’s largest sporting event. This topic and the issues involved give particular emphasis to the challenge for London 2012 to meet its promise to host “a truly sustainable Games”.
You may recall that last year the Commission released a waste management review, which looked at London 2012’s commitment to the promise of the Games being ‘a catalyst for new waste management infrastructure in East London’.
A year on, I’m really looking forward to talking more extensively on the topic when I visit the midlands to present at the Recycling and Waste Management Exhibition (RWM). The three-day event is being held at Birmingham’s NEC and will play host to delegates from all over the world. The event also has a product and exhibition hall as well as an impressive line-up of speakers.
My session is scheduled on Thursday 15 September at 11.30am and is titled No Time To Waste – A review of London 2012’s Waste and Resource Management. If you’d like to register to attend RWM (it’s free), please click here.
