This unique seminar is designed to give service directors, managers, elected members and trade union representatives in the service areas of Fleet, Waste, Parks, Grounds and Streets the opportunity to gain knowledge from experts in the sectors and to discuss strategic and policy issues with colleagues.

Scotland’s Traffic Commissioner, Ms Claire Gilmore will open the event on Wednesday 18 May and discuss the responsibilities of fleet managers and the latest issues.

Other topics which will be covered during the event include food waste 10 years on with Zero Waste Scotland providing an overview of the progress of food waste recycling as well as ongoing challenges; Aberdeenshire Council providing information on their collection method and how this allows them to collect from their whole area despite much falling under the rural exemption; as well as Western Isles providing information on how their food waste plays a vital role in their local energy hub.

Waste data and technology will also be a focus at the event, with SEPA's waste tracking team providing a presentation around the final destination of waste as well as this delegates will find out about South Ayrshire’s waste app and Fife’s new in cab technologies.
