Businesses invited to free seminar on waste disposal
BUSINESSES in Lancashire are invited to attend a free seminar to help them understand how they should dispose of waste.
The event, from 9.30am to 2pm at County Hall, Preston on Friday (April 28), will be a chance for small and medium-sized businesses in the construction and agriculture sectors to find out more about regulations for handling business waste.
Representatives from a number of organisations will explain waste disposal responsibilities from the waste regulator, the waste producer and the waste management sector points of view.
Speakers from organisations including the Environment Agency, Tradeskips, Atkins Global and the ‘Right Waste, Right Place’ campaign will be in attendance.
The event is being hosted by the Lancashire Waste Partnership - made up of Lancashire County Council, 12 district councils and the neighbouring unitary authorities of Blackpool and Blackburn with Darwen.
Sam Corp, head of regulation at the Environmental Services Association, which runs the ‘Right Waste, Right Place’ campaign, said: “Events we have held across the country have been a huge success and facilitated some great discussion among attendees from the construction sector.
“We look forward to bringing this latest seminar to Lancashire and sharing knowledge with construction and agriculture businesses across the county.
“The ‘Right Waste, Right Place’ campaign is here to help businesses to do the right thing with their waste and comply with their legal obligations.
“Small business owners are often stretched, multi-tasking and under pressure. Our campaign provides valuable and easy-to-understand materials that will help them put good practices in place that protect them from breaking the law.”
