Business waste resource management so that every employee within the business can be more aware of how they manage business waste resources, to reduce our harmful impact on the planet.
This short guide provides an understanding of general environmental awareness and business waste management (also known as resource management). It is suitable for all levels of workers including employees, supervisors and managers as well as business owners.
Explaining how you can manage and take ownership of your business waste resources, no matter how small or large your business is. Using the slogan 'Recycle at work as you do at home' this course encourages people to think about business waste resources in the same way as they do at home, with everything that's recyclable being separated and processed with the least environmental impact.
We give examples of waste which come under the WEEE Directive (Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment) which deals with the collection, recovery and recycling of electronics and component materials for businesses, and obligations for businesses for the safe disposal of these items within the framework of these regulations and their own purchasing strategies. We also offer suggestions for how to reduce electrical equipment going to landfill, by supporting charitable organisations who run recycling schemes which accept business donations and provide signposting to make it easier for you.

Our course explains clearly and simply about how individuals can reduce, reuse and recycle, discussing why each type of material should be recycled due to their impact upon the planet, and how it can easily be done in a work environment. We use statistics to demonstrate our current recycling levels, and how there's room for improvement by encouraging 'Zero Waste Heroes' at work. We explain how a lot of business waste is clean waste which would normally be thrown away at the first time of asking and how we can make a difference if we stop filling holes in the ground with waste that can be recycled.
