How Covid 19 Has Affected Street Cleansing Services During 2020, Cleaner Streets & Improved Service outcomes - Is Artificial Intelligence a Legitimate solution? - Citizen Engagement and Community Power
This webinar will cover topical themes around litter and street cleansing and will be chaired by Mark Richmond, the Chair of the NE Centre of CIWM. Speakers include:
- Steve Robinson, Essellar Waste and Resource Management
- Gareth Morton, Discovery Manager, Ecosurety
- Andrew Kemp, CEO, Littercam Ai
The focus of this webinar is to take a holistic look at Climate Change and the Circular Economy and what this means for managing the resources on our planet.
The webinar will start by giving a high level overview of the climate and biodiversity emergency we are now in. This will be followed by details on how Ireland plans to address this climate emergency from the perspective of waste action for a circular economy.
Finally, there will be a talk on how stakeholders in the Waste Management and related sectors can take specific action for the circular economy. There will be plenty of time for Q&A and discussion at the webinar.
The plastic recycling sector received a boost recently when Innovate UK announced the award of grants totalling £20m to fund new technology development.
The panel will comprise of representatives from 3 leading Advanced Recycling businesses that are developing different processes for the chemical cracking of difficult to recycle plastics.
Much of the waste plastic that currently goes to landfill or incineration is from household sources and there is a big increase in packaging waste arisings over the Christmas period. Our lead speaker will discuss strategies for Christmas waste minimisation.
There will be a quiz towards the end of the webinar, so make sure to stick around and take part.
Contamination of household recycling continues to be an issue for local authorities and their contractors. A number of initiatives are coming over the horizon that promise to help, but these are several years away. In this webinar, we’ll examine the three different tactics you can deploy NOW to make a difference.
– a commonly-used approach, involving escalating interventions, from tagging, through to threatening bin removal, to denying contaminators access to the kerbside recycling service. Beverley Simonson will present LWARB’s evidence about what works.
– encouraging people to recycle correctly by offering an incentive is an attractive proposition. Donna Cox will explain how a popular scheme which offers benefits to residents has reduced contamination in Bracknell Forest.
– communicating with residents to inform and persuade them to recycle correctly is essential, but not something that everyone gets right. Sarah Ottaway of Suez will showcase some of the more successful approaches.
