Maintaining skill sets and safety levels in the waste and recycling industry


Riverside’s team of experienced engineers don’t just service and maintain waste balers. They also deliver certified operator training when our machines are first installed.
But what if operators move on to a new role and leave a skills gap within the workforce? We can train your new recruits!
And what if experienced operators have picked up bad habits or forgotten things along the way? We can provide refresher sessions to ensure nobody cuts corners!
Our courses are quick and cost-effective, yet incredibly thorough. They’ll also be carried out on your site, using your own machine, at a time to suit you. It couldn’t be easier.

What do we cover?

Whether we’re delivering introductory or refresher baler training, our comprehensive sessions cover:

  • - Safe operations
  • - Sequence error troubleshooting
  • - Basic maintenance regimes
  • - Waste baler do’s and don’ts!

The goal is always to equip operators with the knowledge they need to run any of Riverside’s waste balers, so we’ll tailor the training to ensure all staff have the skills they need.

What do you get?

All training course attendees are issued with a two-year certificate to evidence their competence and support their continued professional development. The certification will also support employers with their legal duty of care (under the Health and Safety at Work Act) to ensure staff have received adequate training to operate the machinery they use in their roles. And, thanks to the helpful tips we offer, operators will ensure they no longer overlook factors that could compromise safety, bale quality or machine uptime.

How much does it cost?

We care about clients’ profitability – that’s why the training courses have been purposefully designed to be cost-effective and affordable. But we don’t believe in a one-size-fits all approach.
Conduct your training at the end of a Riverside baler service inspection, and you’ll pay £50 + VAT for a up to 10 operators.
But, if you don’t need or want a service inspection, we can still come out and see you for £150 + VAT for a team of the same size.
Other options are also available for larger groups.

Our aftersales support

A number of organisations – especially those making the first step to improve their waste handling capabilities – are a little apprehensive about what happens after their investment in a waste baler. What if their plant manager gets a new job and there’s a knowledge gap? What if they make a mistake and a small repair is needed? These worries are perhaps natural, but there’s really nothing to panic about.

Firstly, our waste balers are incredibly easy to use, but secondly, our baling engineers will be with you every step of the way, long after the initial procurement. Providing training, service and maintenance expertise, spare parts or simply a waste handling review, we’ll help you maximise the return from your investment, for years to come.
