Is your Business Waste Smart?

Every business can enhance their environmental performance, reduce costs and limit the risk of non-compliance by ensuring their workforce is familiar with waste and resource issues.

Albion Environmental Ltd in association with Zero Waste Scotland and the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) are approved to deliver Waste Smart training courses at both foundation and advanced levels.

The Waste Smart courses were developed by CIWM to provide industry standard training that could be adopted by all business and industry sectors and are endorsed by Defra, the Environment Agency and ESA.  The courses offer advice, knowledge and skills to help reduce waste, save money and improve the environment.  At the end of the training course, all successful delegates will receive a certificate that is valid for 5 years at their chosen course level.

Foundation Course Details
