Episode 1: Celebrating the UK Resources Sector: Tackling Waste Crime and Driving Policy Change

In the first episode, we have two special guests: Dan Cooke, CIWM’s recently inaugurated President, and Anna Willetts, CIWM’s immediate Past President.

Together, they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table, providing valuable insights into the pressing issues surrounding waste management and resource utilisation.

The Conversation: 

  • We kick off the conversation by exploring Dan’s presidential report, which revolves around celebrating the UK resources sector. Discover the inspiration behind this theme and the ambitious goals it aims to achieve.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the current policy drivers in the UK and how they impact the resources and waste sector.
  • The critical issue of poor practice and waste crime, building upon Anna’s presidential report on the concept of “end of waste.” While the sector strives for best practices, criminals take advantage and break the law. Together, our guests shed light on effective strategies to combat this challenge.
  • We tackle the question of how UK policy changes can support the growth of the sector, while also considering the role of consumers in driving change. Delve into the potential policy reforms that would benefit the industry and explore the importance of engaging consumers in sustainable waste management practices.
