Waste Legislation

There is a need for all commercial sites to be fully compliant with recent and long term environmental legislation and specifically to ensure their premises discarded waste is dealt with to ensure total compliance in an ever demanding environmentally legislated world.

Incurred costs are often placed on businesses by the Government, Europe and Regulating Bodies throughout the UK.


Some important legislation needing to be fully complied with includes;

  • The Hazardous Waste/Landfill Directive
  • Hazardous Waste Regulations
  • Duty of Care Section 34
  • Environmental Protection Act
  • Waste Acceptance Critera

These regulations have a major impact and must be complied with.
