Transfer of hazardous waste between parties must be recorded on a legal document called a consignment note. Hazardous waste is that which can be harmful to humans and/or the environment. Some examples of this class of waste are:
- lead acid batteries
- oils (except edible ones)
- used oil filters
Any business producing, holding or removing greater than 500kg of hazardous waste within a 12 month period is required to register with the Environment Agency.
Further advice on management of non-hazardous and hazardous controlled waste may be obtained from the Environment Agency.
