This webinar will help collection crews understand the problems caused by contamination in dry recycling. We will run-through our practical and interactive training sessions, which you can adapt to your own collection system and procedures on dealing with contaminated containers.
The training has been designed to change thinking and crew behaviours and has grown from WRAP’s successful historic crew programme. It can be adapted to run as one long, two shorter, or three snappy training sessions.
We recommend that our training is used in tandem with effective supervision and encouragement of crews, to ensure their action on contamination sticks.
Supporting packs and presentations for crews
We can supply a ready-made presentation template for you to use in your own training with crews. We can also supply a full workbook on how to deliver a training session, including all activities and materials mentioned in the webinar. Please email us on [email protected] to request this.
