View Full Seminar Information


This annual national event will provide a complete guide to the latest issues affecting local environmental front line services including waste and recycling, refuse collection, transport, streetscene and the public realm, street cleansing, grounds maintenance and parks services. This APSE seminar has an impressive range of speakers involved in the debate, pulling together the key issues, opportunities and challenges for these vital frontline services. It will bring together elected members, officers and other key stakeholders from across environmental service providers to discuss and share thoughts and ideas on how best to meet the challenges ahead.

Case study workshops will be held to maximise delegate interaction. The event will also feature the APSE apprentice of the year awards for transport and horticulture, which have again generated a high level of interest amongst local authorities throughout the UK. The Association welcomes delegates to the event from England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland and we hope that you will be able to attend and participate in what will be a highly interesting and informative seminar.
