Waste management service company, Waste Cost Reduction Services (WCRS), has launched a freely downloadable jargon buster. The new guide is designed to be a resource for those responsible for waste and recycling across all industry sectors.

Written as a quick reference guide for those wanting to know more about the industry and their legal obligations, the new guide simplifies some of the complex terminology used in waste regulations and legislation. Terms such as “producer responsibility” and “waste transfer and consignment notes” are explained, as are concepts such as the circular economy and the waste hierarchy.

“We want to take the headache out of waste management and we believe in helping those responsible for waste and recycling as much as possible,” explains Robert Logan, managing director of WCRS. “We work with a diverse range of clients and this guide provides a useful reference point across the board – we want to help everyone understand how important waste management is.”
