The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) was first established as The Association of Cleansing Superintendents of Great Britain on 25th June 1898, with waste managers from northern and Scottish cities. It was incorporated as The Institute of Cleansing Superintendents in 1908, The Institute of Public Cleansing in 1928 and then as The Institute of Wastes Management in 1981.
