Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1.

Replaces superseded equivalent CPPCLO2019A Sort and remove waste and recyclable materials.

This version first released with CPP Property Services Training Package Version 4.

Application

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to identify waste and recyclable materials to be removed, assess hazards associated with their removal, remove waste collected or created through the cleaning process, and safely transfer it to a dedicated waste disposal point for collection using required equipment and methods. Waste collection is conducted as part of a regular cleaning routine, usually on a daily basis and can include a range of materials, such as chemicals, contaminated materials and general waste. The unit also covers identifying recyclable materials and transferring them to required collection points. Recyclable materials are those that may be reused or made into another product.

The unit supports cleaners who work alone or in teams. It applies in a range of commercial and residential work sites.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory, or certification requirements apply to this unit of competency at the time of endorsement.
