CIWM centre celebrates centenary

A number of special events are to take place this year in marking the centenary of the London and Southern Counties Centre of the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management.

In celebrating this milestone, officials have organised the Great Waste Debate which will take place on 23 March in London and promises to be a very lively, interactive event based on a topical and controversial issue.

To be held at the Institution of Civil Engineers on Great George Street, the concept of Zero Waste-Pigs Might Fly will be discussed by speakers including Green Alliance report author Julie Hill, representatives of the industry, retail and local government.

The debate will then be opened to the audience which will be encouraged to express its views before a vote is taken.

Other notable events include the Great Waste Cruise which will feature the links between the River Thames and waste management and the Great Waste Seminar which will look at the history and progress of the industry over the last 100 years.

Full details of celebrations during 2007 can be found at with events culminating in a special annual lunch on December 14.
