Waste duty of care code of practice

DEFRA and the Environment Agency has published practical guidance on how to meet the waste duty of care requirements in England and Wales.

The Code of Practice applies if you produce, carry, keep, dispose of, treat, import or have control of waste in England or Wales.

The law requires anyone dealing with waste to keep it safe, make sure it’s dealt with responsibly and only given to businesses authorised to take it.

If you’re authorised or registered in Scotland or Northern Ireland but you store, transport or transfer waste in England or Wales, you should also take account of this code.

This code is issued under section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
