Waste & Recycling Training for Businesses

The importance of resource efficiency and management to all businesses means that the waste & recycling sector continues to grow even during times of worldwide economic insecurity.

There is great value in the 430 million tonnes of waste the UK produces annually – £6.8 billion gross (DEFRA) and 160,000 jobs. Not all businesses have realised the potential to make savings on their waste management (and better help the environment around us); and the 4,000 accidents each year suggest that when they do, their plans and operating procedures could be improved.

That is why Action for Community & Environment (ACE) is seeking to engage with businesses across England & Wales to offer training courses and qualifications to staff to ensure that they have the right skills and competencies to work safely and deliver excellence in the workplace.

These courses are WAMITAB-approved; CIWM-accredited; and Ofqual-regulated.
