  • accurate and standardized methods of measuring and reporting performance
  • auditing principles
  • sampling methods
  • benchmarking and data analysis

  • compliance with regulation

Training Objectives

A combination of lectures and workshops offers attendees hands-on experience through case studies, creation of audit plans, and development and application of auditing skills through table-top scenarios and situational exercises.

Participants apply audit findings into compliant and effective waste reduction work plans that focus on waste reduction and reuse as priorities.

Waste Auditor Training is a popular offering that attracts a diverse set of individuals who wish to expand their knowledge and experience:


Circular Innovation Council offers specialized Waste Auditor Training for corporations with company- and sector-specific examples and exercises to examine existing waste and recycling programs.

Corporate training enhances waste and recycling management of an organization, and enables greater co-operation and standardization across multiple locations or departments. Internal management capacity and relationship with vendors are also discussed in a private setting not suitable in an open classroom setting.

Most importantly, with more efficient and knowledgeable staff, organizations can reduce cost and increase revenue from materials recovery.
