specialised training to target dumped or stockpiled tyres
A morning session will increase attendee understanding of the powers of an authorised officer and the provisions of the Environment Protection Act 2017. Trainees will also learn how to identify a waste offence and its elements, plus focus on useful investigation techniques.
An afternoon session will build on this, demonstrating proven methods Local Government can use to reduce stockpiling and illegal dumping of tyres. This includes demonstrating steps to gaining internal support and implementing a taskforce, outlining the better practice regulatory response in tyre waste scenarios and teaching investigation techniques tailored to the issue.
