Monthly Meeting

October Monthly Meeting – Waste Management

Date: Wed, 16 October 2019

Time: 12:00pm – 14:00pm

Location: One Trinity Green, Eldon Street, South Shields, NE33 1SA

For our AMF October monthly meeting we will hear from Biffa Waste Management to find out what really happens to our commercial waste once it is taken away.

What can we do to make sure as much of our waste as possible can be reduced, recycled or re-used/re-processed?

Are there alternatives to some of your packaging/products that could help reduce cost and be more environmentally friendly?

We will also hear from local packaging manufacturer, LV Packaging on the alternatives to plastic packaging and one use packaging developed for their customers using cardboard and wood which is all manufactured at their Jarrow site. LV also utilise a bio mass boiler powered by the waste materials from the manufacturing process to help further reduce costs and environmental impact.
