BUSINESSES are set to be told how to dispose waste properly at a seminar at County Hall next week.

The event will let owners know about regulations for handling waste properly and effectively.

Sam Corp, head of regulation at the Environmental Services Association, which runs the ‘right Waste, right Place’ campaign, said: “The events we have held across the country have been a huge success and facilitated some great discussion amongst attendees from the construction sector.

“We look forward to bringing this latest seminar to Preston and sharing knowledge with construction and agriculture businesses across Lancashire.

“Our campaign provides valuable and easy-to-understand materials that will help them put good practices in place that protect them from breaking the law.”

The free event will take place on Friday, April 28, from 9.30am and 2pm at the Lancashire County Council’s offices in Preston.
