Waste – A Suitable Case for Treatment

Price: £180 + VAT

This training video provides step-by-step guidance to the requirements in the Landfill Regulations for the characterisation and pre-treatment of waste.

Essential viewing for all those sending waste to landfill

Waste – A Suitable Case for Treatment


Did you know…

…that in addition to the requirements of the Duty of Care, all waste destined for landfill must have a basic characterisation?

And that apart from a few exceptions, untreated waste is banned from landfill?

It is the producer who sends the waste to landfill that is responsible for the ‘basic characterisation’. So even if you have satisfied the pre-treatment requirements by segregating your waste before sending it to landfill you are still legally responsible for the characterisation.

Make sure you are operating within the legal requirements by training all those responsible for the disposal of waste in your organisation. This video explains the 12 pieces of information required for the characterisation of your waste.

It’s essential that this information is accurate, detailed and complete to ensure legal compliance and that waste is not rejected at the landfill. This video explains each category with a worked example.

However undertaking a basic characterisation will also help you comply with the Duty of Care as it is a requirement that you provide a full and accurate description of the waste on waste transfer notes.
