Re-use: A missed opportunity (Suez Webinar)

3 April @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Making reuse and repair economically viable and a normal part of everyday behaviour needs scale, accessibility, and connectivity. In our previous webinars , we discussed the here and now, from setting up a reuse shop at your local Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), to building repair services to support your customer demands locally. Now, in the finale of our series of reuse and repair webinars, we look to the future and the opportunities for local authorities, businesses, individuals, and the environment through upscaling our current system. This session will explore the next steps in the evolution of local authority supported reuse and repair services: networks which operate across local boundaries, how to support and enable local businesses to establish and grow; and how these parts can see the engagement with reuse and repair increase, with significant environmental, social, and economic benefits across the value chain. Join our expert panel for a 60 minute discussion on the opportunities created by re-use models, and how businesses and local authorities could benefit economically, how communities could benefit socially, and the environmental benefits re-use models can bring over time.
