Waste vs Resource - Diffusing The Misconception 

Proudly sponsored by Tablelands to Tabletop.

In this broad thinking workshop we guide you through a deeper understanding of what is waste and what is valuable resource across 3 main areas:

  • The unseen waste of society today.
  • Food waste.
  • Plastic end of life.

We all know our household waste goes in the wheelie bin but what about businesses? Have you ever wondered where all the waste goes when a building is demolished? How about a shop refit or even the old kitchen reno?

Dan Hannagan has had a lifetime of experience in the waste industry and will shed light on all the unseens wastes of society today.

Tina O’Hagan is an environmentally focused Food Service Consultant with
35 years’ experience working in the Hospitality Food Leisure and Business

Foodwaste- Overview on the volume created

  • Factors that contribute to foodwaste.
  • What can you put into foodwaste?
  • How can you reduce it?
  • Current solutions on the market.

And finally, plastics. With 10 years in the plastic industry Lesley Van Staveren will guide you through:
