Aim of the workshop:

To consider the optimum methods of collection that can or should be used for different types of house or business environment, (high density, low density, rural, high street or industrial estate) and the resultant infrastructure needed to support them to optimise the product qualities for each potential form of energy recovery.

Building on the requirements of the Landfill Ban consultation, the recent report on kerbside collections by WYG (consultants) and operator experience, we will consider what products from collection will arise in the future and the methods that can be applied directly or after pre processing to recover the energy embedded in the waste.

To consider the impacts on CV and organic content to both type of recovery and the value of the energy outputs (total energy, ROC/LEC qualification).

About your workshop leader:

Technical Director

SITA UK was established in 1988 and currently employs more than 6,000 people.  We have a proud history of delivering environmentally responsible and innovative waste solutions throughout the UK. A recycling and resource management company, we deliver solutions to 12 million residents and 40,000 business customers, to help everyone reduce the impact of their waste on the environment. In 2008 SITA UK managed more than 10 million tonnes of waste, recycling and recovering 30 per cent of this through our network of recycling, composting, energy from waste and landfill facilities. We also generated over one million MWh of electricity from our landfill gas and energy from waste facilities - enough to power approximately 220,000 homes.

We work with a vision of living in a society where there is no more waste.  This vision draws on the concept of the circular economy. In this model, waste management services are linked with the cycle of production and consumption, as waste is recognised and utilised as a secondary resource in the manufacture of new products - giving waste a ‘second life’. Headquartered in Maidenhead, we operate in over 300 locations throughout the UK, including offices; civic amenity sites; transfer stations; landfills; and energy from waste, material recycling, composting and security shredding facilities.

SITA UK is able to draw on the security and experience of our parent company SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, which has a presence on five continents, employs over 62,000 people and has an annual turnover in excess of 12 billion Euros. With more than 120 years of efforts to constantly improve the quality of life for all, SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT is exclusively dedicated to the environment business in which it has firmly secured its position as world leader.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
