WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Classes show key buyer side stakeholders how deploying the latest digital technology-enabled solutions and best practices can help increase the efficiency of waste collection, separation and disposal, and facilitate the transition of the waste market to a circular economy. Delegates include commissioning, procurement, trialling and partnering leads, senior influencers and strategic decision makers from UK waste collection authorities (WCAs), waste disposal authorities (WDAs), private waste contractors, local/combined authorities and their waste management & recycling partners, retailers, health services, building and estate services, utilities and renewable energy providers, reuse and waste prevention organisations, central government departments and environmental agencies. Core themes range from collection vehicles logistics optimization, automated waste collection systems, smart bins, analysing waste-related databases and new ways of aggregating, cleaning, visualising and sharing waste data, to connected asset management/using IoT to maintain assets before they breakdown, reuse and redistribution applications, ‘designing out waste’ in construction, and new business models (e.g. digital sharing platforms, product as a service, sustainability as a service).

Delegates will hear from industry movers, shapers and disruptors during initial rapid-fire thought leadership presentations, before moving on to in-depth consultations with experts and peers during the roundtable discussions. In addition, this Smart Class will feature up to 3 keynote presentations giving real world insight into collaborative initiatives and digital journeys to date.
