Hale Events reveal sustainability measures for Expowest Cornwall 2024

Hale Events, organiser of the Expowest Cornwall trade show, has revealed several changes to its waste management and sustainability measures for the 2024 show.

Passmore Cleaning Company, which is exhibiting at the show for the hospitality, catering, and food industries, will spearhead the collection of waste from stands, along with cleaning the show, while TQuality is set to take responsibility for recycling cooking oil used during the event. Biffa, the waste management expert, will ensure the responsible disposal of the various wastes generated by a trade show, including food waste, glass, cardboard, and mixed general waste. All this will be either recycled appropriately or taken to a waste plant for conversion into electricity.

Taking place on March 6 and 7 at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge, Expowest Cornwall brings together buyers from the hospitality, catering, and food retail
industries, offering a unique opportunity to explore a diverse array of food and drink brands all under one roof.

Mike Anderson, managing director of Hale Events, said: “We are constantly striving to better manage the waste produced at our trade shows. It’s great to be working with Passmore Cleaners, TQuality, and Biffa in Cornwall to enhance waste separation and removal, with a focus on recycling as much as possible.”
