The final details have been confirmed for our next WEEE and batteries seminar, to be held in Birmingham on Wednesday 7 September.
The seminar is for any producer involved with WEEE and batteries compliance, with a focus on batteries compliance in the morning and WEEE compliance in the afternoon. Producers can attend either session or both, with lunch provided for all attendees.
The seminar will be far more than a training exercise – although it will be a great opportunity to get up to speed on the regulations and approaching future changes, enabling producers to sufficiently prepare and plan for the future.
A rare opportunity
Importantly, it will offer a rare opportunity for producers to get in the same room as recyclers and the Environment Agency, along with key specialists from ecosurety, to link up many of the stakeholders in the producer responsibility regulations.
We will explore the commercials, market trends and current processes behind the recycling evidence for both batteries and WEEE that influence producer’s quarterly invoices. There will also be case study presentations, round table discussions and an introduction to international compliance. The event will also provide an excellent opportunity to network and ask our specialists any questions they may have.
“It’s great to meet our members and stakeholders at these events to get a feel for what really matters to them. I’m always amazed by the value it provides to all who attend.”
Robbie Staniforth, commercial manager
About the venue
Fazeley Studios dates back over 150 years to the industrial revolution, in the days when Birmingham was known as the workshop of the world. The building has been lovingly and sensitively restored to retain its period features and charming character, but with a distinctive, imaginative design aesthetic befitting its place as the anchor site of Birmingham’s trendy creative quarter.
Fazeley Studios is located within 10 minutes walking distance of Birmingham City Centre in Digbeth. New Street and Moor Street train stations are both within easy walking distance.
