The Controlled Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2012 set out the rules for the management of controlled waste in England and Wales. The regulations define controlled waste as any waste that is not household, industrial or commercial waste, and imposes a duty of care on anyone who produces, imports, carries, keeps, disposes of, or manages controlled waste. The regulations require controlled waste to be stored, transported and disposed of safely, and for waste producers to ensure that the waste is transferred only to authorized carriers, brokers and disposal sites. The regulations also set out specific requirements for the storage and disposal of hazardous waste.
The Controlled Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2012 require those who produce, transport, and manage waste to keep records to demonstrate that they are complying with the regulations. These records may include the type and quantity of waste produced, details of waste carriers and disposal sites, and the steps taken to ensure that the waste is handled and disposed of safely and legally. These records must be kept for at least two years and made available for inspection upon request. Failure to keep adequate records can result in fines or other enforcement action.
There are some exemptions to The Controlled Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2012, including:
1. Waste produced by households - this includes waste generated from a house or flat, such as general household waste, garden waste, and DIY waste.
2. Agricultural waste - waste generated from agriculture, horticulture, or forestry.
3. Mines and quarries - waste generated from mining, quarrying, or exploration for minerals.
4. Health care waste - waste generated from health care activities such as hospitals, clinics, or medical research facilities.
5. Radioactive waste - waste that contains radioactive materials.
6. Waste generated during transport - waste generated during the transport of goods or passengers, such as food waste generated on a train.
It is important to note that even if a waste is exempt from the regulations, it must still be managed responsibly to prevent harm to human health and the environment.
