Session Overview 

Waste management is a key focus within the construction sector, particularly as we see many developers, contractors and local authorities setting net zero targets. Also the government’s Resources and Waste Strategy aims ‘to eliminate avoidable waste of all kinds by 2050’ in England, which includes waste from a wide variety of sectors such as plastics, textiles, food and includes construction, will bring additional demands to the sector.
