Beach Cleans, RECOUP & FPA – Joining the fun & supporting our memberships

September is set to be one of our busiest months to date – after a nearly 2-year event break, we are finally back doing what we enjoy, networking and attending industry-leading events. With staff working both remotely and now just gradually coming back into the office, it seems like a lifetime ago we attended a meeting that wasn’t online, but finally, it seems our teams will be able to get back out onto the road and attend the specialist events.

Aside from the RWM Exhibition, where we are proud exhibitors on stand 5-U104, we have also set plans to visit other industry shows including Let’s Recycle Live and InterPlas. These exhibitions, are far from the end of the event plans we have during September.

Annual Beach Clean Up - Litter PickBeach Clean 2021

Our environmental warriors will be picking up their litter pickers once again and heading to the East coast to carry out our annual beach clean. Organised by charity, The Marine Conservation Society, we have formed a team of volunteers for a number of years now, litter picking a designated stretch across the UK coast. Clearing up this litter will not only keep our beaches clean but prevent it from entering the ocean and our waterways. This year the team is heading to Filey on Saturday, September 18th, if you want to organise your own litter pick, head to their website.

RECOUP – Plastics Resources and Recycling Conference 2021

Another annual event, which we always have in our calendars is the RECOUP Conference. Canceled last year due to COVID, we are eager to attend this event once again, ready to discuss the hot topics, in plastics, recycling, waste management, climate change, polymers and so much more. RECOUP is an organisation that aims to promote, develop, stimulate and increase the levels of plastics recycling within the UK – with the same passion for recycling, Cromwell has been a member of RECOUP for many years, each year attending their annual conference.

The FPA Golf Day - Cromwell are proud supporters of the FPA

FPA Golf Day

Another annual membership event we are always excited to be involved in is the FPA Golf and Activities Day. For several years now, we have sent a team of avid golfers to the fun-day event, which is not only a great day of sport but a wonderful networking opportunity.

Finally, we are also planning an internal event – the Macmillan Coffee Morning, an event we have run in the past but in previous years has been cancelled due to the office move and COVID. Now our teams can switch from waste experts to baking professionals, all in aid of charity.

It is certainly set to be a busy September, with more events planned for later in the year. If you are attending any of the above events, please make sure you say hello to the Cromwell team, who are on hand to handle any enquiry (even mid golf-game).
