Company director to speak at hazardous waste forum

The managing director of a company specialising in waste solutions is to be a guest speaker at the National Hazardous Waste Forum summer seminar in Oxford.

Paul Woodhead of the AWM Group will discuss the topic of hazardous waste reduction and disposal, with the event focusing on finding solutions for small to medium enterprises.

With asbestos providing a particular problem, its disposal will be discussed as well as issues relating to the Waste Strategy Consultation, case studies and information on Oxford County Council’s own chemical collection service.

The AWM Group has itself begun rolling out Asbestoclear, a cement-based asbestos removal pack and safety disposal service which is enabling builders to deal with the substance safely and effectively.

Woodhead said: “With the high cost of traditional disposal solutions and the introduction of recent legislation which prevents builders and the trade disposing of asbestos-related materials at local authority waste sites, it’s extremely encouraging to see the uptake of Asbestoclear.

“This is helping builders and the trade to comply with regulations and generate extra income from work they may otherwise not have been able to complete.”

The event takes place on July 6 and other speakers include representatives of the Environment Agency, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Envirowise and Oxfordshire County Council.
