The 2010 Recycling and Waste Management Exhibition (RWM 10) takes place in Birmingham, England, Sept. 14-16. The conference, which organizers describe as “bigger than ever before,” features an indoor and outdoor exhibition of more than 500 firms offering the latest technologies and solutions to the recycling industry. RWM 10 is free to attend and gives visitors access to more than 40 informative sessions offering legislative and financial advice and first-hand case studies of successful public and private sector projects.

The program in the Local Authority Seminar Theatre, sponsored by SCA Recycling and Bywaters, covers food waste collection, recycling solutions for apartments and how councils are tackling commercial and industrial waste. In the Business Seminar Theatre a full day is dedicated to carbon and cost reduction through minimization of construction waste, while retailers can find out how packaging design and procurement can help to achieve zero waste without sacrificing profits. Meanwhile energy from waste, wastewater re-use and carbon efficiency will be tackled in the Energy & Water Theatre, sponsored by Motherwell Bridge. Speakers have been confirmed from the London Waste & Recycling Board, WRAP, Glenigan, Arup and the BREW Center for Local Authorities, among others.

New features for 2010 include the Envirolink Pavilion, which will showcase a range of companies from the region’s recycling and waste sector.

Visitors can register online for free fast-track entry to RWM 10 and take advantage of the MyRWM Show Planner, a simple online tool that creates a personalized floor plan of relevant exhibitors.

Gerry Sherwood, RWM event director, says, “Green industries are thriving while economic and legislative pressures have made waste, energy and resource management more relevant than ever before. As a result our audience broadens every year. Last year’s event attracted almost 10,000 visitors from across the public and private sector, and hundreds have already registered for this year, including representatives from county and city councils, Royal Mail, Morrisons, PriceWaterhouse Coopers, United Utilities and other blue chip companies.” He adds, “With an expanded exhibition floor, a number of new features and a great choice of free seminar programs, we have made sure that a visit to RWM will offer you contacts, solutions, ideas and advice, whatever industry you work in.”
