Diary date London waste strategy conference EU deadline for reducing landfill

As the UK approaches the first EU deadline for reducing landfill, waste is back at the top of the agenda. If the UK does not meet the requirements, the country will face an initial fine thought to be around £180 million. If the second and third targets are not met – in 2013 and 2020 – then the estimated fine could rise to £500 million.

Issues to be discussed:

How to fund waste projects from a legal perspective

The solutions for the biodegradable fraction of both mixed residual waste and source-separated waste

How to deal with kitchen food waste; the options and their consequences

How the London Waste and Recycling Board help deliver the Mayor’s vision for waste management in London

How to meet the 2013 waste targets in London.

Speakers:

Mark Berry, Partner, Norton Rose LLP
Tim Evans, Director, TIM EVANS ENVIRONMENT
Chris Hatton, Technology Manager, Viridor Waste Management
Andy Holdcroft, Chief Operating Officer, London Waste and Recycling Board
Peter Jones, Board member, London Waste And Recycling Board
