Recycling Centre- we will be partnering with Mil-tek GB Ltd to bring a recycling centre to the show. Located on stand G4 Mil-tek will be recycling cardboard, plastic and other dry waste throughout the event
Co-Locations - The Facilities Show is co-located with Safety & Health Expo 13-15 May and IFSEC, 12-15 May at the Birmingham NEC.

The new Sustainable FM Academy will present three days of environmentally themed sessions providing visitors with the opportunity to debate the two vital topics in every major building - energy and waste management. Each day will include presentations from expert keynote speakers, including panel debates featuring the country’s most respected FM professionals. The Carbon Trust, Connaught, Royal Sun Alliance, Land Securities, Trillium, Amaryllis, Sims Group and Charterhouse Energy are just some of the major companies taking part.

For the first time The Facilities Show will feature a recycling centre, courtesy of Mil-tek GB Ltd. Located on stand G4, Mil-tek will be recycling cardboard, plastic and other dry waste throughout the event. This is the perfect opportunity for visitors not only to think green for their organisation, but to be green themselves.
Bryan Wingfield, Sales Director of Mil-tek, comments, “Both corporate social responsibility and new legislation are making environmental good business practice a necessity for modern organisations. Exhibitions can be very wasteful environments, so the organisers of The Facilities Show should be commended for their commitment to green issues. We look forward to recycling as much waste as possible during the show and talking to visitors about their recycling needs.”
