CIWM training helps construction professionals tackle waste

The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) is launching a training course to help equip construction professionals for potential changes in Government legislation as well as covering waste management and minimisation.

This launch comes ahead of the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs proposals to introduce Site Waste Management Plans (SWMPs).

Proposals would require managers of construction projects worth more than £250,000 to assess how much waste the project will produce and plan how it will be reduced, recycled and disposed of responsibly.

CIWMs new construction course is based on its existing Waste Awareness Certificate (WAC). The WAC (construction) course shows attendees the true costs of waste and ways to reduce it. 

A wide range of organisations were involved in the courses development. This included Construction Industry Research and Information Association, Constructing Excellence, Waste & Resources Action Programme, Envirowise, Taylor Woodrow, AMEC and the Environment Agency.
