Waste auditor training coming up

The Circular Innovation Council is offering a waste auditor training course in April.

Waste audits allow organizations to assess what’s being wasted and uncover revenue streams. They also evaluate the effectiveness of waste reduction programs, measure success, and improve operations.

The training is based on a Standard Waste Audit Method, that supports development in key areas: 

  • Accurate and standardized methods of measuring and reporting performance
  • Auditing principles
  • Sampling methods
  • Benchmarking and data analysis
  • Best practices
  • Compliance with regulation

A combination of lectures and workshops offers attendees hands-on experience through case studies, creation of audit plans, and development and application of auditing skills through table-top scenarios and situational exercises.

Participants also learn:

  • Modern methods of performance measurement
  • Methods of calculating waste reduction
  • Realistic indicators of effective source separation programs.

Participants apply audit findings into compliant and effective waste reduction work plans that focus on waste reduction and reuse as priorities.

Waste Auditor Training is a popular offering that attracts a diverse set of individuals who wish to expand their knowledge and experience:

  • Seasoned waste auditors
  • Recent university graduates
  • Waste haulers and processors
  • Custodial and environmental services staff
  • Sustainability professionals
  • Facility managers
  • Green team members
  • Representatives from IC&I waste generators, such as manufacturers, hospitals, and retail chains

The April session takes place April 16 to 19, 2024. For more information go to: circularinnovation.ca
