Gloucestershire's Joint Waste Team supports trade waste initiative
Right Waste, Right Place
Right Waste, right Place campaign launches Ambassador Programme and secures Suez, Veolia, FSB, Cory Environmental, Augean PLC, Redrow, Willmott Dixon and the Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team as Campaign Ambassadors
Right Waste, right Place (rWrP), the campaign which raises awareness of the Duty of Care legislation and provides practical information to help businesses from a broad range of sectors to comply, has today launched its Ambassador Programme. Suez, Veolia, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), Cory Environmental, Augean PLC, Redrow, Willmott Dixon and the Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team have already signed up to become Campaign Ambassadors and will raise awareness of the Duty of Care amongst their +5,000 suppliers. As such they are champions of the cause and may use the campaign materials to their benefit including bespoke research and educational packages.
The initial criteria to be an Ambassador are as follows:
Evidence that the organisation embraces the principles of rWrP and has an internal programme and policy on waste management.
A commitment to promoting best practice with regard to waste management.
A commitment to actively engage with rWrP to promote the campaign.
Sam Corp, Head of Regulation at the ESA, commented:
"The number of organisations actively involved with the right Waste, right Place campaign, representing a broad range of sectors, shows just how serious an issue Duty of Care compliance is. Therefore, I am delighted to announce Suez, Veolia, FSB, Cory Environmental, Augean PLC, Redrow, Willmott Dixon and the Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team as Campaign Ambassadors and look forward to many more organisations signing up to the programme in the near future."
Primarily, but not exclusively aimed at SMEs, rWrP raises awareness of the Duty of Care legislation and provides practical information to help companies, partnerships, family businesses and sole traders from a broad range of sectors to comply and help keep waste out of the hands of waste criminals. An easy to use interactive website www.rightwasterightplace.com has been developed, which offers practical advice on how to manage waste safely and efficiently. Those interested in joining the rWrP Ambassador Programme are encouraged to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
