Segregation of waste - Hazardous waste should be segregated at the point of production, not mixed with other wastes and held securely, protected against wind, rain and interference.
Consignment Notes - Any organisation involved in the transfer of hazardous waste must ensure that the transfer is covered by a consignment notes. Consignment notes provide details of each party involved in the transfer of waste and the type of waste being moved in order to ensure it is handled safely. These notes must be kept on file for a period of 3 years. In England and Wales the consignee i.e. person who receives the hazardous waste must complete a quarterly declaration to the Environment Agency to confirm they have received the waste onto their site or they have produced hazardous waste on and disposed of it on the same site.
Waste Hierarchy - Anyone who produces, handles or manages hazardous waste must take all reasonable measures to apply the waste hierarchy when they transfer the waste i.e. they must manage the waste in order of preference by: Prevention, Re-use, Recycling, Recovery and Disposal. Consignment notes now include a declaration that the waste hierarchy has been applied before transferring the waste.
