“Attending the Waste Champion training course was a real eye opener on all matters waste. The processes and procedures covered in the course as well as the practical elements and site visit have helped me expand my knowledge of the subjects massively and being able to apply these methods in the healthcare work place has been invaluable.

The training was well delivered, tailored to my needs and the knowledge of the instructor vital in helping me understand the waste process from cradle to grave”.

“Now that my on-site soft-services team have completed their training by WTS, we realised that there is a huge difference between dealing with waste and actually MANAGING it. We now do the latter and view the entire process of waste management in a wholly different way”.

“The Shopping Park received quality advice on the range of training available and were able to schedule it on site at times that minimised down time. The training increased the Team’s knowledge and skills and was well received by them, due in no small part to the quality of the Trainers. We are now fully compliant and when updates or refreshers are needed we would happily use WTS again.”

“The Waste Champion course has a variety of content designed to make you think about how you deal with your waste, and it definitely made us think about ours, and how we go about getting the most out of it.

Insightful, thought provoking, and rewarding – to help you save money and achieve great results, invaluable!”
