wamitab logoThe new WAMITAB qualifications remain based on existing National Occupational Standards (NOS) but use updated terminology with less repetition and are designed to be more accessible to a wider audience.

Learners registered before 1st April 2016 will continue with the previous qualifications and have until 31st March 2019 to complete their units. Learners registered on or after 1st April 2016 will take the new qualifications.

Wiser Environment’s WAMITAB Approved Assessment Centre, the Milton Assessment Centre, is training and assessing both previous and new WAMITAB Level 4 qualifications. For more information, contact Georgina Leach on 01480 462 232.

End of halogen light bulbs

From this September, the UK Government is set to ban the sale of halogen light bulbs – with fluorescent light bulbs to follow suit.

We offer a complete collection and recycling service – so, get in touch if you have any unwanted lights, light fittings or bulbs.

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance

The EA has updated its odour management plan guidance. Overall, the guidance outlines how operators must control and monitor emissions from their activities that may cause pollution.

Changes include clarifications regarding when the EA will want an odour management plan. They may request one during pre-application, determination, variation or at any point during the lifetime of your permit.

Also, Materials recycling and handle odorous inputs or reject streams and Intensive Farming have been added to the list of Activities that require an odour management plan.
