CRR brands Paignton the “home of recycling discussion”

The Campaign for Real Recycling (CRR) has announced plans to exhibit at the Plant & Waste Recycling Show (PAWRS) Paignton show in June, a week before Futuresource.

The CRR will hold a “discussion marquee” at the three-day PAWRS event, which is expected to attract between 3-5,000 visitors. The Paignton show has already secured 130 confirmed exhibitors, including May Gurney and Whale Tankers.

CRR co-ordinator Andy Moore said: “It [PAWRS] didn’t have quite as much political and environmental content as it used to, but bringing the CRR, that adds a dimension in that direction.”

But the organisation said it was not concerned about the closeness of PAWRS to the Futuresource event. Moore said: “If we want to get a bit metaphorical about it, there is a choice – there’s a choice about going down to the waste route or the recycling route, and this is the recycling route.”

This will be the second PAWRS show since Futuresource moved from its traditional home of Paignton, Devon, to the ExCeL centre in London in 2009. Other confirmed speakers to PAWRS include Philip Ward of WRAP, Joe Papineschi of Eunomia and Iain Gulland of Zero Waste Scotland.

CRR chairman Mal Williams said: “This is the original home of recycling discussion, now even more so since the logic of quality recycling has triumphed in 13 authorities including in Torbay itself, with the advent of the new May Gurney JV.”

PAWRS will run from 8-10 June 2010.
