  • Two GENeco employees have joined a growing group of technically qualified staff within the company.

    Biosolids controller Mike King and bioresources treatment technician Samantha Gardner are the latest employees to gain the Certificate of Technical Competence (CoTC) qualification from the Waste Management Industry Training and Advisory Board (WAMITAB).

    The qualification allows permitted waste facilities in England and Wales to demonstrate they employ technically competent people with the knowledge and skills to ensure waste sites comply with Environmental Permitting Regulations (2007).

    The qualification involves a multi-section exam on legislation, health and safety and environmental protection, in additional to activity specific questions. Holders of the certificate are reassessed every two years.

    GENeco now has 14 CoTC holders across the organisation, including representatives from liquid waste treatment, food waste recycling and biosolids.

    Harriet Edwards, liquid bioresources treatment supervisor, said: “We’re proud to support our employees to further their training and education in the industry. Qualifications such as the WAMITAB CoTC demonstrate our commitment to providing the very best service to our customers.”
