RWM 2016, Europe’s premier event dedicated to resource and waste management solutions, will become the first exhibition in the UK to recycle 100% of cups at the event in Birmingham on 13th-15th September.
RWM are working in partnership with Simply Cups, the UK’s only collection and recycling service dedicated to turning paper and plastic cups into second-life material, to ensure that all cups that are used during the event are collected and recycled.
An additional 74 waste points will be on site which are designed to separate and collect liquid waste and the used cups.
Nicola Meadows, event director said “Top campaigners to industry associations, the hospitality sector and the public are all demanding more to be done to close the loop on single use coffee cups. We feel the RWM event is the perfect place to lead the way for future exhibitions in the UK. As event organisers, it is imperative that we not only deliver a show with great content on recycling solutions and resource efficiency, but that we also ensure our operations are aligned with these goals.”
