In 2019 FCC Environment worked with Letsrecycle Live, through the provision of a bursary programme for a number of local authority recycling officers.

The bursary programme was open to those working in a local authority who have an operational, technical or administrative background covering waste and recycling issues. The 18 successful applicants received one night’s accommodation at the onsite hotel as well as travel expenses to and from the event.

The scheme was implemented to remove the financial barrier that some local authorities face and enabled them to discover what the show has to offer and to learn about both the latest policy and technological developments.
