Ambassador Programme launched for waste campaign

03 August 2016

Formed to raise awareness of the Duty of Care legislation, the right Waste, right Place (rWrP) campaign has now introduced its Ambassador Programme, which has gained immediate support from a number of high profile organisations.

Those becoming ambassadors of rWrP are allowed to use the campaign materials for benefits such as bespoke research and educational initiatives.

Prior to this, ambassadors have to provide evidence that they embrace the principles of the campaign and have internal programmes and policies covering waste management.

They also need to show commitment to drive best practice in waste management and be actively engaged in promoting rWrP.

Ambassador Programme members signed up to date include Cory Environmental, Augean PLC, Redrow, Suez, Veolia, the Federation of Small Businesses, Willmott Dixon and the Gloucestershire Joint Waste Team.

rWrP is aimed primarily, but not exclusively, at SME organisations, providing practical information to assist in complying with the Duty of Care legislation and also helping to keep waste away from 'waste criminals'.
