Course Key Facts:
Duration: 1 day
Course Overview Waste minimisation and careful management can reduce significant costs to your organisation, increase profits and protect the environment. These are key factors in gaining a more competitive edge in the market place.
Producer responsibility for packaging waste requires companies with a turnover of more than? 2 million who handle more than 50 tonnes of packaging to recover and recycle a set percentage of packaging waste. Companies can reduce their obligation by reducing the amount of packaging they handle. Space for landfill is rapidly running out and tighter regulation means that many waste products are difficult to get rid of. All organisations need to prepare for forthcoming changes.
