About Waste Management Training

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

This course is designed for employees and managers who have a duty to handle or manage waste. It provides a greater awareness of proper waste separation, categorisation, collection and disposal, especially concerning hazardous materials.

Why Is Waste Management Training Important?

Total commercial and industrial waste in England was 33.8 tonnes in 2020, which has been steadily increasing since the 2010s. Comparatively the UK generated a total of 222.2 million tonnes of waste in 2018, which also included waste from households, municipalities, and other sectors.

The cost of managing waste and the penalties for doing so incorrectly are increasing. Any individual who is involved in handling, disposing or transferring waste must understand the steps in the process.
