    Sustainable waste tyre management
    Old and unwanted tyres can become a problematic source of waste for municipalities, due to the number produced and because of their size and the fact that they are not biodegradable, they can become a major problem for landfill sites, both in terms of the space they take and the indirect health and climate hazards they can cause. This presentation will provide a practical overview of how tyre waste can be economically and sustainably dealt with.

    Panel: Segregating waste at source
    If waste is going to be efficiently and effectively recycled, reused or avoid being sent to landfill, it needs to be sorted at the point of origin. It is also an effective way of encouraging people to minimise their waste. This panel session will discuss why it is important to encourage businesses and households to separate their waste, and how municipalities can put in place measures to ensure this happens. It looks at the strategies, technologies and services that can be used by municipalities to ensure waste is sustainably dealt with and reduces the volumes that go to landfill sites.
