Waste & Resources Network

Following December's waste conference, Environment Kirklees has made a start in setting up the waste and resources network in Kirklees. It's taken longer than we had hoped due to resource constraints but the revamped conference web site to support this (www.kwrnet.org.uk) will be ready before Easter. It will include reports on the conference and details of projects and organisations in Kirklees working on waste minimisation and recycling. 


We'd also like to see a quarterly forum on strategic issues. We have identified several areas that we think need a follow up workshop: textiles and upcycling; plastics and tackling one trip containers; festivals and events; furniture recycling and the role of HWRCs; food waste, composting and "junk food"; the role of community and voluntary organisations in delivering solutions.
