The biennial CRNI conference took place in Farmleigh on 12th October, with excellent attendance from our members, many of our stakeholders and a number of people from academia, NGOs and businesses alike.

The theme “Making Reuse & Recycling Happen” translated into a focus on what business models work best for reuse and recycling organisations, with plenty of ideas discussed about what models will need to be adopted to continue reuse and recycling into the future.

CRNI would like to thank all of our delegates, for taking the time out to attend and participate, our speakers, panelists and chairs for their valuable inputs and all those who helped to make the conference a great success.
