Additional Information on the “Hazardous Waste Regulations”

Hazardous waste is essentially waste that contains hazardous properties that may render it harmful to human health or the environment. Many everyday products such as fluorescent tubes, TVs, computer monitors and some paints and batteries are now classed as hazardous waste. (Please visit www.environment-agency.gov.uk for a full listing of hazardous waste substances)

If you produce any of these hazardous substances you may need to register your premises with the Environment Agency on an annual basis. The Environment Agency charges a fee to register your premises with them.

There are some exemptions in place so not everyone need register their premises:

People who Do need to register their premises:

  • Businesses producing any hazardous waste
  • Any households, offices, shops, farms, schools, colleges, prisons, residential and nursing homes, hospitals, dental, veterinary and other medical practices, premises used by charities and places used for the purpose of collecting waste electrical and electronic equipment that produce more than 200Kg of Hazardous Waste in a year.

  • Households, offices, shops, farms, schools, colleges, prisons, residential and nursing homes, hospitals, dental, veterinary and other medical practices, premises used by charities and places used for the purpose of collecting waste electrical and electronic equipment, producing less than 200Kg of Hazardous Waste in a year

Failure to register your premises means that you will be committing an offence as will anyone who removes hazardous waste from your premises.

Hazardous waste disposal is subject to Duty of Care. As such you need to complete and retain consignment notes for each consignment of Hazardous Waste.

Mixing of different categories of hazardous waste or the mixing of hazardous waste with non-hazardous waste is prohibited under the regulations, unless the mixing is authorised by a permit or exemption.
