Open Waste Compliance final conference

This one-day conference, held at the University of Reading and organised by Open Waste Compliance, is aimed at the waste management sector, waste regulators, local government, environmental law specialists and practitioners in the areas of sustainability and the circular economy.

It will feature:

  • An introduction to new research on harmonising waste management compliance data through a pan-European open data framework – a one-stop verification register for licensed waste management contractors in the UK and across Europe, developed to combat waste crime such as illegal dumping (‘fly-tipping’) and illegal burning of waste.
  • Guest speakers on waste regulation and on environmental law;
  • Roundtable discussions;
  • A wine-tasting reception & networking.

It is free to attend although places are limited and early registration is encouraged.

This is your opportunity to meet the researchers behind the EU-funded Open Waste Compliance project and to hear about the latest developments in UK and EU waste regulation.

The conference is being hosted by Recycle2Trade, the Institute for Environmental Analytics and the Portuguese Environment Agency (APA).
