Places available at venues in the North, South and Midlands – register your interest now.

Do you need help understanding the legal requirements of managing the waste your organisation produces? Would you like to be confident that you are effectively complying with your waste duty of care obligations? Why not register your interest for our one-day training course?



Duty of care legislation applies to every organisation in the UK which produces, handles or controls waste. This one-day course will introduce and provide a comprehensive overview of the waste duty of care and other relevant waste legislation that is applicable in England, to give you the skills required to comply.


Who should attend?

This course is aimed at all organisations and individuals who generate, handle or treat waste within England.

If your organisation produces, moves or recovers/disposes of waste then you have legal waste duty of care obligations which you and your employees must understand and comply with. This course will support you to clearly understand and manage these responsibilities.

It will be particularly useful for those responsible for managing environmental compliance and employees who handle waste and complete waste transfer paperwork.


What will I learn?

Using a mixture of presentations, activities and group discussions, by the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Understand the legal requirements so you can comply with your waste duty of care and other waste legislation.
  • Understand waste controls, and when and how to apply for an environmental permit or exemption.
  • Complete waste transfer notes and hazardous waste consignment notes.
  • Undertake duty of care checks on waste contractors and track your compliance with duty of care requirements.
  • Understand how to correctly classify the waste you produce.

You will leave the course with the tools, templates, and the knowledge required to ensure that your organisation is managing its waste correctly, safely and in accordance with the law.
