High profile fire incidents have affected waste sites both large and small, damaging businesses dealing with a wide range of recyclable materials up and down the UK and causing distress for nearby residents.
As well as being a blight on the local community, fires at waste sites damage the reputation of the whole UK recycling sector, which also impacts on the ability of firms to secure insurance.
In order to tackle the problem, the Environment Agency has issued stricter regulations for waste site operators through its Fire Prevention Plan guidance. Meanwhile, regulators and industry have been working together on improving scientific knowledge of how fires occur by testing a range of different waste and recycling materials.
The full day programme will see input from the Environment Agency, WISH Forum and Fire & Rescue Service serving as a platform for an annual update on fire prevention and control in the waste sector.
Visitors will also hear an update on tackling the issue of lithium ion batteries and innovative technology, in addition to in-depth case studies providing valuable insight into the cause, effects and necessary responses when handling a fire on site.
