Save £8K a year with free Anenta waste management training

Waste disposal company Anenta has published free training in waste management for care homes.

Data shows that 70 per cent of care home waste is consistently put in the wrong waste channels including regular contamination of the most costly waste – clinical waste. Low-risk items, which should cost £300-£500 per tonne for disposal as offensive waste, are being disposed of as infectious waste, costing upwards of £800 per tonne.

Anenta estimates suggest that the average care home wastes £8,000 every year through poor waste management process and procurement.

The new e-training module, which is hosted on the Health Education England online portal, aims to address correct waste segregation practices, and other important waste related guidance, such as Pre-Acceptance Audit (PAA), which most care homes should complete every five years.

Anenta Director Graham Flynn said: “Correct segregation is critical if the care home sector is to cut costs and achieve Net Zero targets.”
