The waste duty of care applies to anyone who produces waste. It is there to ensure that waste is disposed of lawfully, and recycled wherever possible. If you try to your cut costs by using an unregistered waste carrier then your waste could end up being fly-tipped – and if that happens you will be liable for a fine. What must I know about what happens with my waste?
What Must I Know About What Happens With My Waste?
You need to know:
- Where it’s gone – to a licensed landfill site, or an Energy From Waste or recycling centre
- How it’s collected, transported and treated – you are responsible for ensuring that the waste carrier you choose is appropriately registered
- Is all the paperwork complete – your waste carrier must provide you with a Waste Transfer Note and a Consignment Note.
What does a licensed waste carrier do?
Your licensed waste carrier or contractor arranges the movement of your waste on your behalf. You cannot move the waste yourself if you are a business unless you have completed registration as a waste carrier. Every waste stream and waste type will have its own specific requirements for how it is handled and transported. Each type of waste needs to be managed and addressed separately so that it is recycled or sent to landfill or an Energy from Waste centre – as appropriate. Regulations governing the carriage of dangerous goods also apply to any hazardous, hygiene and healthcare waste.
