There was a time when we simply got on with the job and the rest of the world left us alone but
times have changed. Now we are an integral part of the waste industry (although it's always been
hard to understand) and we have to keep abreast of all the changes affecting our businesses.

ATF Professional's editor, Chris Floate.
ATF Professional's editor, is Chris Floate. Chris has been involved with writing and editing
magazines which cover our industry since the mid 1980's. Having a background prior to this in
technical writing, Chris took on the editorship of Recycling World in 1987. The title was aimed
at those individuals and businesses involved in recycling. At the time this was mainly scrap metal and vehicle dismantling.
During his 14 years, the recycling industry developed from what was very much a financially
driven market to the environmentally driven market it is today.
Recycling world was at the forefront of this fast changing and developing market, giving in
depth analysis and direction to the growing need for environmental awareness. Whilst still
editor of Recycling World, in 1998 Chris took on the editorship of The Landscaper, the leading
magazine for the landscape trades.
Over the last 15 years, Chris has also edited the Motor Vehicle Dismantlers' Association and as
such has experienced the many changes to our industry first hand. In ATF Professional he shares
that wealth of knowledge with the whole industry.
