UK Environmental Law - Waste
people must take reasonable measures to prevent the deposit,
treatment or disposal of waste, except in accordance with
a waste management license.
Waste on site should be contained, stored securely, and labelled.
It must only be transferred to an authorised person, accompanied
by a transfer note that contains sufficient information to
handle the waste safely.
Local authorities must establish and maintain registers of
carriers of controlled waste. An "authorised" person is either
a local authority or the holder of a waste management license.
to comply is a criminal offence, punishable on summary
conviction by a fine up to £5,000 or on conviction on
indictment by an unlimited fine.
