Tackling Hazardous Waste Changes – How Will They Impact Construction?

It can be a real challenge keeping up with the ever-changing rules and regulations around waste legislation. Failure to comply can result in significant fines or even criminal prosecution. Reconomy takes two aspects of hazardous waste regulations that have changed in recent months.

You’ve got to be on the ball when complying with waste legislation. Unlike a football match, it’s not a game of two halves. It’s one where you have to be on your toes for the whole match. Drop the ball and the penalties are punitive. It can be a real challenge keeping up with the ever-growing rules and regulations. But there is some good news from the sidelines. Two aspects of the Hazardous Waste Regulations have changed in the last quarter. The first is less paperwork (I can hear you cheering from the stands). The second is the format of the unique consignment note code. You may not think these are major changes and you would be right. Nevertheless they are changes you have to keep up with if you don’t want to receive a red card. So now: * If you produce or store 500kg or more of hazardous waste per year you will no longer need to register your premises with the Environment Agency provided you are in England. If you are in Wales you should continue to register with Natural Resources Wales. * You still have to complete a consignment note code (if the waste is produced in England) but instead of the premises registration number you should put the first six letters or numbers (not symbols) of the business name.
