Lancashire Waste Partnership Workshop 1

Lancashire Waste Partnership Workshop 1

21st Jun 2013

Resource Futures and Waste Resource Action Programme (WRAP) are identifying options to increase the amount of bulky waste re-used and recycled in Lancashire, on behalf of Lancashire County Council and Blackpool Council.

As part of the research, two one-day, multi-stakeholder workshops are planned to help achieve the research aims. These will bring together members of the Lancashire CRN, district councils, Lancashire County Council and Blackpool Councils, Housing Associations and commercial waste producers as well as industry experts Ray Georgeson and Caroline Lee-Smith, to develop future bulky waste service options for Lancashire.

All Lancashire CRN members involved in bulky waste reuse and recycling activity have been sent a survey to gather important baseline data and identify the issues and barriers they face, with a view to addressing them. The next step is the two workshops:

The workshops will be held in the conference room of the Environmental Education Centre in Leyland (refreshments and lunch will be provided). The dates for the workshops are:

Workshop 1: 21st June 2013 (10-4pm) - please book below

Workshop 2: 22nd July 2013 (10-4pm) - click here to book

The workshops come at an exciting time for bulky waste services in Lancashire, with the Social Value Act being implemented and options available for its implementation. These will all be explored in more detail during the workshops.

Third Sector Experts

Ray Georgeson and Caroline Lee Smith are leading experts in the community waste sector and are sub-consultants involved in the research and workshops.

  • Ray brings over 30 years of experience in waste and resources, operating at senior executive level in the public, private and third sectors. He was Director of Policy and Evaluation for WRAP and Chair of London Remade and CREATE UK. Ray’s most recent work includes an analysis of the potential impact of the new Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 for SITA.
  • Caroline has over 10 years’ experience, specialising in third sector re-use of bulky items. During her time working at the FRN, she researched and wrote the first comprehensive manual for Furniture Re-use Projects (Bulky Basics) and assisted and ran workshops for FRN members to help them negotiate and tender for bulky waste services. More recently as a Development Manager for the London Re-use Network, she has run events (such as the North London Housing Association engagement event) developing business plans and funding proposals.

We would be pleased if you can attend and contribute to better bulky waste services for Lancashire.
