Journey of Waste: Introduction to Waste Legislation

Last updated: 24th November 2020

Cloud Sustainability's course 'Journey of Waste' examines legal requirements and prominent UK waste management legislation throughout the waste management chain. It aims to help users understand their key legal obligations in relation to waste management and the associated compliance documentation they need to be aware of. It also explores key elements, including Duty of Care, the Waste Hierarchy and End of Waste concepts.

The course focuses on the compliance ‘journeys’ of four different waste
materials that allow users to learn about a range of waste management
legislation in practice.  These wastes
are packaging waste, waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE),
hazardous waste and food waste. 

During these journeys users will focus on the roles of the waste
producer and waste carrier, examining their legal requirements from the point
of production, transfer and the transportation of these wastes to a range of
recycling, recovery and disposal outlets. 
By taking the waste management journeys from production through to
treatment, users will develop a comprehensive understanding of their legal
responsibilities in practice.

This course provides a solid introduction to waste management
and assumes no previous knowledge or experience. The course looks at
responsibilities throughout the waste management chain and therefore it is
relevant to anyone who produces, carries or treats waste.
