About the Event

The circular economy is a phrase which is being mentioned in many quarters, whether this be waste management, resource management, levels of production, social enterprises, climate change planning or energy management to name but a few. In fact, the circular economy can mean many different things to different people.

The meeting is an ideal opportunity for officers, elected members and local authority partners and trade unions to hear how the aims and objectives of the circular economy are being addressed by local authorities in the north of England and beyond. The approaches highlighted are very much focused on how we deal with, or indeed, avoid the creation of waste.

There will also be the opportunity to network with colleagues from across the APSE Central region and share knowledge and experience.

APSE Central Region AGM

The event will also feature the APSE Central Region AGM will be your opportunity to have your say in APSE Central Region representation to our National Council and other important business.
