I am the CEO of Bartec Municipal Technologies, a company working in the municipal recycling and environment sector to modernise the way we deal with waste.
Since joining the business as a software developer (employee #2) in 1995 we’ve grown it to almost 40 people. Now 1 in 3 British local authorities use our tech and expertise to make their services better, safer and more effective.
The pace of change is both fascinating and frustrating! We could and should be doing so much more to reduce, reuse and recycle the products we use. Our work is often at the intersection of technology, politics and ambition, in a constant quest to get all three aligned for long enough to make progress.
