Event description
Paper Round and Vegware have joined forces to provide a commercial composting scheme

About this event

In 2019, recycling company Paper Round piloted a collection scheme for Vegware’s compostable foodservice disposables from 12 large corporate offices, including client training and expert support to encourage successful recycling behaviours.

This webinar analyses the waste audit data and learnings from the scheme, as well as sharing the successes and pitfalls of separately collecting compostable packaging.

Paper Round and Vegware have now joined forces to provide a commercial composting scheme in London, Brighton & Sussex.

Paper Round are a recycling company servicing over 6,000 customers in London, Brighton & and Sussex collecting everything from mixed recycling, food, and glass, to coffee cups, grounds, and IT equipment.

Vegware are specialists in plant-based compostable foodservice packaging, with an in-house Environmental team whose consultancy helps clients implement composting schemes.

Together, they have created a best-practice recycling solution for compostables, with customer engagement at its heart.

Join us in this webinar to learn:

  • What are compostable foodservice disposables?
  • How are they composted?
  • Experiences of how a composting collection works in practice, analysing waste audit data from the pilot scheme
  • How the new scheme might work for you

Followed by a Q+A session open to all attendees.

The webinar will be hosted by Paper Round's Commercial Director, Tom Mockridge together with Vegware's Sarah Gray, National Account Manager, and Annalise Matthews, Waste Management Consultant. We will also be joined by Andy Sibley from enVar, the in-vessel composting facility, to delve deeper into the composting process.
