help available?

There are a number of resources available to help businesses manage their waste.

There are two local organisations that will visit your business to discuss your situation and even provide free advice and waste audits. These organisations are Cumbria Business Environment Network and Envirowise.

Another useful resource is Waste Watch, which features a useful information sheet on the environmental impact of workplaces and how to improve the environmental performance of your workplace.

As your action plan develops you may find you need the services of a local recycling or trade waste organisation.

Any business must be aware of their environmental obligations. Netregs provides small/medium sized businesses with all the appropriate information on these obligations and identifies how they can easily comply with the environmental legislation that affects their business.
