Seminar Objectives

The APSE annual Environment Seminar aims to provide delegates with the latest up to date service ideas and improvements in the areas of waste and recycling, refuse collection, transport management, street scene, street cleansing, parks and grounds maintenance. Expert speakers will be looking at how, through the better use of data and the provision of clearer guidelines, these tools are helping services across the UK to achieve more effective outcomes. There will also be several case studies of how working with our communities and the promotion of volunteering opportunities has seen both service efficiencies and more customerfocused service delivery, particularly in hard to reach groups. Delegates will also hear about the need to continue to support apprenticeships and the benefits such roles can bring both now and in the future.

The seminar will bring together elected members, officers and other key stakeholders from across the wide range of environmental services featured in this event to share thoughts and views on how they are meeting the growing financial challenges and public demands being placed upon them. In addition, case study workshops will also be held to offer the opportunity to discuss in more detail issues which are currently high on environmental service agendas.

The seminar will also feature the APSE Apprentice of the Year Award for transport and also for horticulture, which as every year has attracted a large number of entries from local authorities across the UK.
