6 & 7 October 2021

The Hilton Metropole, Birmingham

A message from the Chair

The LARAC Conference is the leading event in the local authority waste and recycling calendar.

Well we did it! A two-day conference event completely online. I don’t think that I have seen any other two-day events in our industry so far this year, and therefore I feel really proud that LARAC managed to achieve this. There was a plethora of excellent speakers, for plenary and workshop sessions, as well as the annual LARAC awards skilfully hosted by our CEO, Lee Marshall. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists who are featured on the awards part of this website.


I’d like to say a big thank you to all the sponsors, to our conference organisers, EMG and to the delegates who took time to attend. We hope to see you in the flesh next year, Covid-19 permitting, so hopefully we can have a face-to-face-event at the Hilton Birmingham NEC, on 6 and 7 October 2021.

See you there.
