Our training is designed and delivered by Ken Westlake - the Director of Waste Training Services Ltd, together with approved associate trainers. Ken has more than 30 years experience within the waste business in the UK and in the development and delivery of training. The courses are structured so as to summarise any legal requirements and to then identify the practical implications for legally-compliant day-to-day business management. Each course can be tailored according to national legislation, and all courses are designed to provide opportunities to address the key issues for all delegates. Discussion and debate is encouraged at all times.


Duty of Care: Implications for day-to-day wastes management

This course provides in-depth coverage of the duty of care for wastes, including the fundamental requirements of legislation, the code of practice and other relevant guidance, together with implications for auditing. The day-to-day management responsibilities of all those who hold waste (including producers, carriers, disposers/ treaters, brokers and dealers) will be identified and the practical implications clarified.
At the end of the course, delegates will have a complete understanding of the roles and responsibilities of all waste holders for legally-compliant day-to-day wastes management.
This course will be especially relevant to those who are new to wastes management and to those with more experience but no formal training.

Waste Legislation in the UK: An Introduction

This course provides an overview of current legislation that affects the management of wastes within the UK (especially issues in the definition of waste, the legal infrastructure, duty of care, environmental permitting and hazardous waste management, including waste classification). As and when required, national variations (within England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) will be identified.
At the end of the course, those attending will know what they have to do to comply with the key elements of wastes legislation on a day-to-day basis. Delegates are invited to raise their own issues of concern so that they can be addressed within the training.
This course will be especially relevant to those who are new to wastes management and to those with more experience but who have no formal training.

Understanding Hazardous Wastes and Related Legislation

This course provides an overview of hazardous waste legislation and related controls on the day-to- day management of hazardous wastes (including use of the wastes management hierarchy together with treatment, incineration and landfill options), as well as summarising the key elements of wastes coding and classification. According to delegate needs, the separate elements can be expanded to provide for more detailed coverage and can be tailored to meet specific training objectives. This course is offered with an England/ Wales focus but can be modified to address requirements in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
At the end of the course, those attending will have a good appreciation of the key elements of hazardous waste legislation, and the related implications for the legally-compliant day-to-day management of hazardous wastes, within the context of sustainable wastes management framework.
This course will be especially relevant to those who are new to wastes management and to those with more experience but who have no formal training.

The Classification of Wastes: WM3

WM3 guidance introduced in 2015 and updated in 2018 supported fundamental EU legislative changes in the way that wastes are coded and classified. This course will take you on a step-by-step approach through the process of allocating correct codes to wastes, and then through the detailed process of determining whether wastes are hazardous. The course has been updated to reflect changes to HP14 thresholds, limits for Ozone-depleting substances, and CIA Packaging waste guidance. It will also highlight key elements of 2018 EC guidance which has yet to be reflected within UK (2018) WM3 guidance.
At the end of the course, delegates will have a good understanding of the use of updated WM3 guidance as well as the EU CLP Regulations and the supporting ECHA C&L database. They will have a good understanding of the whole classification process and how to use legal and guidance documents.
This course will be especially relevant to those who are new to wastes management and to those with more experience but who have no formal training.
