RWM and Letsrecycle Live to run side-by-side

The RWM and Letsrecycle Live trade shows will run side-by-side this year following ROAR B2B’s acquisition six months ago of the Environment Media Group, which owned the Live event.

Suppliers will process material live on-site at the event

To run on 14-15 September 2022, the combined event will bring together “the best of both shows”, with an expected attendance of more than 10,000.

Taking place at the NEC Birmingham, the free to attend two-day event will be spread across indoor halls and an added 10,000m2 of outdoor exhibition space. More information is available at

Visitors will see live demonstrations of vehicles and machinery, more than 300 expert speakers across 100 sessions, a range of networking events, and the on-site pub, street food market and live music.

ROAR B2B says the revamped layout “provides space for ground-breaking suppliers to showcase their solutions in a live working environment”.

This year, the event welcomes the likes of Blue Group, Doyle Machinery and Air Spectrum, who will process material and run their kit in the Live Demonstration Area.

Visitors can also see electric and low-emission vehicles in the Trucks in Action and Street Cleaning Demonstration Area.

The shows form part of “the UK’s largest environmental event” as it runs alongside Flood Expo and Contamination & Geotech Expo. RWM is organised in partnership with the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management.


Nine conference theatres will provide more than 100 hours of CPD-accredited content for local authorities, waste management companies, independent operators, reprocessors, waste producers, manufacturers, and suppliers.

Speakers will address topics such as the delivery of the Resources and Waste Strategy, the transition to Net Zero, and the “future generation”.

There will be dedicated sessions for material streams including metals, plastic, paper, wood, textiles, waste electrical and electronic equipment, glass, tyres, organics, and food.

Social and networking events will include:

  • the Women and Diversity in Resource Management
    Breakfast Meeting
  • Rising Star Networking Meeting
  • Fox’s Lair Product Pitch
  • Innovation Awards
  • Health & Safety Workshops.
