Our success is largely driven by providing education to our customers. We feel that it’s important to be able to offer a recognised standard backed by an Industry leading body. Having a good understanding of waste and the associated environmental impacts is essential when you’re developing sustainability strategies.
We’re an accredited training centre for WasteSmart, the Chartered Institute of Waste Management’s (CIWM) industry leading training course. WasteSmart is designed to offer accessible, practical and sustainable waste and resource management skills. CIWM is the professional body representing our industry, and sets the professional standards for those working in the sector. WasteSmart is a Defra and ESA supported certificate that provides a concise introduction to waste and resource management for those not directly involved with the industry. The course not only helps to increase understanding of how and why waste should be managed efficiently, but offers advice and guidance that will save money and aid regulatory compliance.
We also have a responsibility to raise awareness and educate our own staff about the challenges our customers face, we believe this is fundamental to driving cultural change. We’re committed to training our staff so that they can see the big picture meaning we create more opportunities to add value to our customer experience. Our goal is for all of our staff to be certified to a foundation level by the end of their first year of employment with us.
