Changes to the Waste Transfer Regulations

Written by  Oliver Johnson - Director
Changes to the Waste Transfer Regulations

In March of this year it was decided by the Environment agency that there would be changes to the information that is included on the waste transfer notes supplied to companies when their offensive and hazardous waste is removed.

The Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 introduce two changes to the information that must be included on waste transfer notes.

Although the regulations came into force at the end of March 2011 the extra information on waste transfer notes is not required until 28 September 2011.

The extra information required is:

  • a declaration that the waste producer or holder has considered the waste hierarchy when deciding how to deal with their waste, and
  • the SIC code of the waste producer using SIC 2007 codes (consignment notes for the movement of hazardous waste will still require SIC 2003 codes).

Operators who produce their own waste transfer notes can include this information from now on if they wish to do so.

SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) codes are used to classify businesses and other organisations according to their activity. As the requirement for a SIC code on waste transfer notes is completely new the latest coding system (SIC 2007) will be used. The SIC code used should be the appropriate code for the transferor, or current holder, of the waste.

The waste hierarchy sets out five broad categories for dealing with waste in the order of their environmental impact. The higher an option is on the hierarchy the more desirable it is as a way of dealing with waste.

From 28 September 2011 waste transfer notes and consignment notes will include a declaration that the holder of the waste has applied the waste hierarchy when deciding what to do with the waste.

Defra are preparing guidance for businesses and public bodies on how to apply the hierarchy on a day to day basis. This is likely to include advice on how to apply the hierarchy to common wastes and information on how to switch to better waste management options.

A draft version of this guidance is available from Defra's website. This document was part of the consultation on the new Waste Regulations which is now closed.

Zenith Washroom Solutions have updated there documentation and will be issuing the new Waste Notes from the 1st of September. For more information on our working practices and risk assessments visit our website or give us a call on 0800 3286452.
