TES, in conjunction with its Irish parent company, Patrick J. Tobin & Co.

The Irish Recycling and Waste Management Exhibition was held in the RDS, Dublin on the 28th and 29th of November 2001. TES had a stand at the exhibition and we were delighted with the number of visitors who came to talk to us over the two days. The exhibition was a great success with record numbers of visitors and exhibitors, illustrating the growing importance and interest in the waste management and recycling sector in Ireland. The picture below shows our stand being visitied by Mr Dan Wallace, Minister of State at the Department of the Environment.
