Green Compass/PAS 402
Green Compass is a scheme that gives anyone disposing of waste, not just construction waste, the certainty it will be collected, checked, recycled or disposed of in an environmentally sound fashion. It is the first stage in our goal to make it easier to manage waste.
Giving Waste Direction
Over 36 companies in Wales are in the process of completing the Green Compass Scheme with 12 companies now fully accredited. We want to develop a network of waste management companies to provide an efficient, effective and measured solution for waste. It allows customers disposing of waste the certainty that their waste will be collected, checked, recycled or disposed of in an environmentally sound fashion, and provides the framework within which waste handling organisations can seek compliance with the new PAS 402:2009 (Publicly Available Specification).
If you are a waste management company there is still time for you to apply for over £5000 worth of funding, which supports both the implementation and the inspection aspects of the Green Compass Scheme.
To receive an application form or further information on the Green Compass Scheme, please email Ross.Irvine@cewales.org.uk
If you generate waste you can ensure that your waste management company provides you with verified and validated data by specifying a Green Compass company. CEW have been working with Value Wales to develop clauses within the SQuID to specify waste is handled by Green Compass companies.
