Waste Hierarchy

 Changes to the Hazardous Waste Regulations

Implementation of the revised Waste Framework Directive has brought some changes to the Hazardous Waste Regulations. These changes have been brought in by the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 and the Waste (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Wales) 2011 Regulations. 

As a waste producer, you will be required to take advice, consider, and document your processes to show how you deal with your waste, including hazardous waste in the order;

     1.       prevention;

     2.       preparing for re-use;

     3.       recycling;

     4.       other recovery (for example, energy recovery);

     5.       disposal.

Labwaste Ltd have always placed a high priority on gaining the best environmental option for hazardous & non-hazardous waste alike, and continue to recover any materials possible. As a part of this process we continuously monitor your incoming wastes, and will advise if a change in presentation will increase recovery options.

From the 1st October 2011, a new statement must be added to the Consignor’s Certificate (Part D) of the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005: Consignment Note which reads: “I confirm that I have fulfilled my duty to apply the waste hierarchy as required by Regulation 12 of the Waste (England & Wales) Regulations 2011.”

Labwaste Ltd will continue to ensure that your legal and moral obligations are met or exceeded.
