APSE Environmental services seminar 2015

APSE Environmental services seminar 2015

View the full seminar programme here

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. This year we are looking how through innovation and income generation, many of the speakers have been able to achieve service efficiencies and improve service quality whilst continuing to meet service user needs. This approach referred to as municipal entrepreneurialism is a key strategic driver for APSE in helping its members continue to deliver excellence and sustainability in their front-line services.

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 be held on both days 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.
