Is Chartered Membership right for me?
Chartered membership (Chartered Waste Manager) is perfect for you if you are looking to make a really strong statement about your achievements in the wastes management industry and demonstrate your commitment to the profession. If you’ve held another grade of CIWM membership for at least 6 months and meet one of these 3 entry routes, you are welcome to apply:
- Have a degree or post-graduate qualification and have a minimum of four years relevant, continuous experience in wastes management including learning and development.
- Are a Corporate (Full) Member of a relevant Chartered Institution and haves a minimum of two years relevant continuous experience in wastes management.
- Have at least 5 years relevant continuous experience in wastes management, including learning and development. This route is the Experienced Practitioner Route, which involves the submission of a report with your application demonstrating how you meet key competencies achieved through practical experience in wastes management.

What are the benefits of Chartered membership?
Chartered members (also known as Full Members or Corporate Members) receive many of the benefits that other CIWM members receive. A full list of benefits can be found here. In addition, Chartered members can use the designatory letters “MCIWM” and the title Chartered Waste Manager, which are instantly recognisable as a connection to CIWM and professional competence. Chartered membership demonstrates passion and commitment to the wastes management industry. This will help demonstrate to employers, clients and your networks that you are a qualified professional in the waste and resources industry.
Chartered Members can also apply to become a Chartered Environmentalist, with the designatory letter “CEnv”.
