Tackling plastic at CHSA conference
Plastic is embedded in every part of the cleaning and hygiene supply chain, from the manufacture of plastic sacks and the bottles containing cleaning chemicals to the packaging of individual products. It presents a challenge we have to address and the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association is hoping to address this challenge by bringing together a panel of experts to explore potential solutions, at its upcoming conference.
Anthony Holley, development director of Biffa, a leading waste management company, will explain the challenges of waste collection.
Mark Roberts, managing director of Plasgran, a leading recycler of plastic waste in the UK and part of RPC bpi Group will explain what can be recycled and how.
Martin Kersh, executive director of the Food Packaging Association, will update delegates on legislation affecting business. Current consultations in Parliament include: Extended Power Responsibility; Consistency of Waste Collection; Deposit Return Scheme; and the Plastic Tax.
Richard Lainchbury, operations director at Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene Supplies and thus responsible for the company's waste management strategy, will offer a case study on the company's achievements to date.
Following the presentations there will be a general discussion and the opportunity for you to pose your questions.
