Our next event:

We plan to hold a virtual meeting via Teams on 6th July with the main theme being hard to recycle materials. An agenda will be sent out shortly.


In the Autumn it is our attention to hold the second meeting around November, details will follow later in the year, and we will consult with our members to see what subjects they would like and whether it will be virtual or in person?


There will be no conference this year as members are still planning for transitions working back in the office.

Hello & Welcome

SWWRF brings together representatives from local authorities, private organisations, waste partnerships and public authorities based in the South West, who all have a specialist interest in recycling and waste issues.


We meet every three months to share ideas, information and best practice about reducing, reusing and recycling municipal and commercial waste. We also hold an annual conference and develop working groups and partnerships to work on joint projects.


Non-members are welcome to attend the conference at a charge of £50 per person.


Anyone interested in becoming a member can contact us in the membership section of the website. 


SWWRF events and the annual conference are kindly sponsored by the below companies. Their web links are available here:
