We are continuing to prepare for leaving the EU as part of the government’s ongoing Brexit preparations. The events will primarily focus on leaving the EU without a deal. We’ll provide updates on the latest situation, next steps, and other useful information. The event will include a Q&A session.

To help us make the most of this opportunity, we would appreciate if your questions and issues around waste management and Brexit could be submitted to us prior to the events. Please send any questions to by 14th October.

An agenda will be shared prior to the event.

Lunch will be provided. Please let us know of any dietary requirements when you register on EventBrite.

This invitation is initially limited to one representative per organisation. If you wish to send another member of your organisation, please email us on the below email address and we will accommodate them if possible after initial numbers have been confirmed.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

The Resources & Waste Team
