The purpose of the Environmental Resource Forum is to promote sustainable waste management throughout South Cumbria. The Environmental Resource Forum began in 1991; originally it was set up by environmental representatives of a wide range of organisations within North West England. The original aim was to help the future provision of waste management as the Furness area, as an isolated peninsula, had an over-reliance on virtually full traditional landfill disposal.
The Environmental Resource Forum (FWC) formed in response to the environmental pressures upon Furness and the impacts of industry, with a view to encouraging new solutions and sharing best practice. It has now evolved to form a valuable networking opportunity for businesses within the area. Sharing a common goal for a sustainable future, we aim to help each other in the efficient and environmentally responsible management of waste.
