CIWM ‘pleased’ with Waste Support progress

The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) has said it is “pleased” with how its WasteSupport service has progressed since its launch a fortnight ago

WasteSupport is aimed at linking the private sector with local authorities facing crew shortages or in need of help with waste services in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement given to letsrecycle.com, head of member engagement at CIWM Paul Sloggett said: “CIWM and all the partners in WasteSupport are pleased with how it’s going.“So far, we have 277 registered users and 227 listings of products and service on offer and wanted, from all across the UK. Users and listings are growing every day.”

Disruption

The service was launched against a background of service disruption to collections such as garden waste and some recycling services, and rising waste volumes and closures of civic amenity sites.
