Duty of Care
Anybody handling controlled waste has a ‘duty of care’ to ensure their waste is stored in an appropriate manner, and upon transfer, is only transferred to an authorised person, and accompanied by a waste transfer note.
The Waste Regulations 2011 brought in important changes to the information that must be contained on a waste transfer note, and the system for registering waste carriers and brokers.
Mayer can provide advice on how to comply with these new regulations, and can register your company with the Environment Agency as a waste carrier or producer.
