The free-to-attend combined event will bring together the best of both shows at the NEC Birmingham from 14-15 September, with more than 400 exhibitors and an expected attendance of more than 10,000.

The agenda features sessions from some of the the more important players in the sector, including Amazon, Defra, the Environmental Services Association, Grundon, Wastepack and WRAP, alongside many more.

Rob Mowat is managing director of the environment division at ROAR B2B, the events company which runs the show. He said: “We’ve very much taken what was successful from Letsrecycle Live in 2021 and combined it with that of the RWM, too.

“What you’ll see is an increase in the number of electric vehicles, electric RCVs, the new technologies within some of the machinery and equipment.

“We’ve also got 14 theatres, so we’ll be covering everything from the circular economy to packaging, data and digital transformations, local authority support and energy from waste. There really isn’t an area of the sector that isn’t covered at the show.”

The show will also play host to the Contamination and Geotech Expo and the Flood Expo as part of “the UK’s largest environmental event”.
