Waste Regulations 2005

The Hazardous Waste (England And Wales) Regulations 2005

 

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU PRODUCE HAZARDOUS (SPECIAL) WASTE.

These regulations came into force on 16th July 2005, and replaced the Special Waste Regulations 1996.

These regulations will remove the need to pre-notify the Environment Agency before hazardous waste can be collected from your site and includes a more simple method for tracking wastes once they have been moved.

You need to register EACH SITE that produces hazardous waste with the Environment Agency every year.

You need to pay a fee to the Environment Agency every year for EACH SITE that is registered.

TO BE EXEMPT FROM REGISTERING AND PAYING A FEE A SITE MUST PRODUCE LESS THAN 500KG OF HAZARDOUS WASTE PER ANNUM.

The Environment Agency will issue you with a registration number for each site registered. You must quote this number on each consignment note used to dispose of waste.

A fee is payable to the Environment Agency for each consignment of waste disposed of.

The ‘end point’ for the waste, ie. The Disposer, pays the Agency and transfers this cost back up the chain to the Producer.

Mixing of wastes at a producers’ site is prohibited.

You need to quote the Standard Industry Classification code AND a six figure EWC code for each process that produces hazardous waste.

Producers must maintain a register of all wastes produced and disposed of.

FIXED PENALTY FINES OF £300 FOR EACH CONTRAVENTION.
