Business waste and your duty of care - Hazardous waste

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
  • asbestos
  • oils (except edible ones)
  • used oil filters
  • pesticides

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.
