Clean Britain 2015 - Launch Event
24 March 2015, Duxford
(part of Aebi Schmidt Innovation Day)

As part of this year's Clean Britain we are inviting anyone involved in the street scene sector to an exclusive launch on 24 March 2015 of the Waste on the Front Line - Challenges & Innovations Report, recently commissioned by CIWM and AEA Riccardo.

Clean Britain celebrates the success and hard work of local authority street scene teams and community groups in helping to ensure we have a clean Britain.

However, with continuing financial constraints this is getting harder to deliver. The event concentrates on the innovations delivered as a result of the austerity cuts, showing how a different approach can significantly deliver.

Dr Adam Read from Ricardo AEA and Dave Halstead from Nottingham Council (2014 Clean Britain Winner), will discuss the report findings and how to still deliver excellent services.

The event is being held on 24 March 2015 at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, in conjunction with Aebi Schmidt's conference.
