Insight from the industry's leading lights

We have collaborated with some of the major players and exciting newcomers in the UK’s waste management sector to bring you series of inciteful and thought-provoking essays. We have chosen to reflect a wide range of topics, but the theme binding them together is ‘what will the sector look like 30 years from now?’

Ours is diverse and fascinating industry, and one that has always been central to a well functioning society. We are all well aware of the challenges the UK faces today – how to deal with residual waste, plastics and waste crime are now commonplace topics for newspapers, radio and television.

The essayists here examine some of the possible answers to these problems and look for a way ahead. It will be down to such businesses and organisations to pioneer new developments, technologies and processes. Underpinning all this, the sector’s workforce will need to grow and adapt to new circumstances.

We hope you find the articles stimulating – part of MRW’s mission is to promote informed debate, so please do send us your thoughts. Industry can only progress through constant and critical scrutiny, and we all have a part to play.

Corin Williams, editor, MRW
