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.
