In September, the NEC Birmingham and Prysm Environmental Event were host to this year’s RWM trade show for recycling and waste management. Over 30,000 businesses from the UK’s environmental and sustainability industry gathered, taking part in over 350 seminars, visiting 500 exhibitors and gaining access to 50 free entry theatres.

Delegates had the opportunity to watch live demos of new technology and witness speakers including Dr Annie Meier from NASA, Tom Szaky from TerraCycle, Procter & Gamble and Jeremy Paxman, patron of Clean Up Britain. The exhibition proved to be the biggest yet and also included Future Resource and Contamination Expo Series and new features like the evolution of Zero Emissions Zone and Waste Tech Theatre.

TeamWARD went along to explore the latest innovations in recycling and waste management from companies all across the country, including machinery specialists and materials handling partner, EH Hassell & Sons. Hassells were one of many providers exhibiting equipment and machinery, demonstrating their functionality, efficiency, and why Ward trusted them for the recent purchase of a brand new Sennebogen 840 for metal processing at Immingham.

Ward’s Commercial Manager, Donald Ward who attended RWM, said: “It was a good opportunity to be at the RWM Expo this year to see so many businesses and displays of new technology at the forefront of recycling and waste management. It’s really inspiring how far the industry has come and how it is celebrated.”

One of the many businesses at the exhibition was steel construction specialists Robinson Structures, who have been working with Ward for more than 20 years, including a recent construction of three new steel frame buildings at Ward’s metal and processing facility in Chesterfield.

A spokesperson from Robinson Structures’ added: “We acknowledge the vital role the recycling and waste industry is playing to protect the environment. We too are confident that our steel products are sustainable and can be recycled without the loss of quality or strength. Building efficiencies and meeting the challenges of limiting the environmental impact of the materials used is vital to our development.”
