This will include recyclers, data analysts, tech pioneers and consultants. Amongst these is set to be Nappicycle, which aims to alleviate issues associated with nappy waste and works with local authorities to divert nappy waste from landfill.

Also attending will be consultancy services Green Edge Applications, which provides advice to businesses on tech solutions for waste-related issues and regulatory compliance consulting.

The Welsh government added that part of the delegation will be Sharpsafe, a sharps management system that incorporates practice methodology designed to reduce needlestick injuries.

Additionally, Resource Efficient Data, Tilon and Polytag are planned to visit as well.

There are also set to be exclusive announcements made to coincide with the show, which will have a huge impact on recycling policy in the country, which has one of the highest recycling rates in the world.

Recycling

The Welsh government highlighted that Wales was “the first nation in the world to declare climate emergency and is one of the leading countries for domestic recycling”.

The country’s recycling rate has been on the rise, from 63% in 2017 to 65.1% in 2019/2020 and 65.4% in 2020/2021, according to the government statistics.

The Welsh government is “funding and investing in projects aimed at improving the recyclability of materials, making waste trackable, developing new materials and finding ways to use its waste”, which are to be brought to new audience at RWM & Letsrecycle Live.

Jane Hall, director at Green Edge Applications, said: “Developing a greener economy that’s equipped to better manage the demands of more sustainable waste management will rely on us having the right skills and technology in place.

“Making sure that we invest in our people will be vitally important. 18 percent of professionals in the waste sector hold no formal qualifications, so it’s imperative that we ensure that industry training standards are accessible to all. That’s what we’re focused on here at Green Edge Applications, and it’s what we’ll be communicating to visitors at RWM & Letsrecycle Live this year.”

The Welsh Government stand reference is R-L200.
