UK Environmental Law - Waste

Such 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.
