This course clarifies legal duties for managing waste at every stage of its lifecycle, from production to disposal.

About Waste Management Training

Organisations have a moral and legal duty to manage the waste that they produce. Poor waste management contributes to air and ground pollution as well as surface water contamination. It also leads to ill health and accelerates climate change.

This Waste Management course is designed for users who oversee waste management or handling. It provides a greater awareness of proper waste separation, categorisation, collection and disposal, including procedures for hazardous materials. Users with this knowledge can ensure compliance with relevant legislation and oversee more efficient and cost-effective waste management systems.

Why Is Waste Management Training Important?

Commercial and industrial waste generated in England has been steadily rising over the past decade, reaching 33.9 million tonnes in 2021. The levels of waste we are producing are causing unprecedented risk to human health and the environment. In response to this growing issue, the government has tightened waste management regulations and increased penalties for non-compliance.

Every organisation must take responsibility for the waste it produces or handles and apply the waste hierarchy successfully to its operations. This course explores effective and compliant waste management, outlining the roles and responsibilities involved and offering practical guidance on implementing and improving systems.
