2 x 1.7 hour sessions: 11 & 12 April 2017
ASBG brings its well renowned Waste Workshop to your desktop
This workshop set is designed to help environmental and waste professionals come up to speed on the complex area of waste classification, resource recovery, and its management. NSW environmental laws establish a complex set of legal controls on the generation, transport, re-use, recycling, treatment and disposal of wastes. There are many pitfalls and administrative processes that abound in the management of wastes in NSW. The workshop is run over lunch time [eat and train] over two consecutive days [2 x 2 hour sessions] plus question time will cover the following areas:
General Wastes – 6 April 12 noon- 1:45 pm + questions
- Definition of waste: waste is very broadly defined, but how broad?
- Illegal waste activities: transport, landfilling and pollution of land offenses
- Impacts of the new POEO (Waste) Regulation 2014: Proximity principle, Scheduled waste facilities, immobilisation approvals and other relevant changes
- Waste licensing requirements under Schedule 1 POEO Act

- Use of Resource Recovery Exemptions and Orders; where they apply and what to do to implement them
