The focus:

Next steps towards a ‘zero waste’ economy: priorities for Government and industry for reducing and recycling waste, and developing the UK’s capacity to recover energy from waste.

Why?

Follows the Government’s Waste Policy Review and recent announcement that £250 million in grants will be awarded to councils returning to weekly bin collections; and
Continuing implementation of Anaerobic Digestion Action Plan.

Key discussion points:

Moving towards a full Waste Prevention Programme in 2013 – key priorities for the food and drink industry, including SMEs;
Further action on preventing waste and increasing recycling – should England’s targets for recycling be brought into line with more ambitious targets in Scotland and Wales?;
Strengthening recycling and waste services in local authorities – what will be the impact of Government support for weekly bin collections?;
Building capacity in anaerobic digestion, and planning for waste infrastructure – what will be the impact of the Localism Bill?;
Financing investment in energy from waste – are the incentives in place for developers?; and
Waste as a resource – does more need to be done to develop markets for waste products and biogas?
