This Waste Management course is designed to help businesses expand their understanding of proper waste management practices, so that they meet their legal and moral obligation to properly dispose of their waste products.

Why is Waste Management Training important?

Having teams trained in waste management can be incredibly beneficial to businesses and organisations, not least because of the penalties involved with the incorrect management of waste!

According to the UK statistics on waste, the total waste created by the commercial and industrial sectors in England alone hit 37.2 million tonnes in 2019, over 5 million tonnes more than in 2010. This shows the extreme issue that waste has become even just over the past decade, and why from an environmental standpoint, proper waste management is more important than ever. Businesses that adopt these best practices not only prevent or reduce the environmental impact created from waste, but also protect themselves from the scrutiny that comes with improper waste disposal.

Businesses and organisations should also consider the risks and costs associated with improper waste management. In 2016, a London-based company was forced to pay over £1.2 million for the improper disposal of 17 million tonnes of waste. Paying these kinds of penalties will naturally put a huge financial strain on businesses, and as such they should be avoided by introducing waste management best practices as early as possible.

Employees trained in waste management will also be able to act as advocates throughout your business, sharing their knowledge so your other teams are fully informed on how best to dispose of waste, while protecting both the environment and your company’s interests.
