Grundon and fmj Waste Management have launched the 2021 waste and recycling management survey. It’s the fourth year for the annual appraisal of how FMs manage their waste and recycling activities and something which marks an unprecedented amount of disruption to services because of the pandemic.
To be able to know how FMs have navigated their way through the final year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed some questions – along with the advice and connection with our editorial steering committee.
The outcomes of the 2021 survey will undoubtedly be published in FMJ magazine and form the foundation of a white paper co-written by FMJ and professionals at Grundon on how best to approach waste and recycling strategies.
