This course will look at the waste hierarchy and its application to the organization, methods of identifying material waste, diagnosis of root causes and preventative methods, the concept of a 'circular economy' and opportunities for utilising another industry's waste as a raw input material. It will also review European, UK and Welsh government legislative requirements and sector specific waste strategy practices.
This course will highlight waste minimisation as a business benefit.
