The Environment Agency has launched a formal public consultation into new guidance for permitted facilities taking non-hazardous and inert waste for treatment or transfer. The purpose of this consultation is to engage with relevant stakeholders to obtain their views on the proposed guidance.
The responses to the consultation will be reviewed and revised guidance will be published on Gov.uk, alongside similar guidance documents for other waste sectors, for example healthcare waste, biowaste, hazardous chemicals. The guidance will apply to existing and new facilities including household waste recycling centres, waste transfer stations, materials recycling facilities and sites producing soil and aggregates.
This consultation from the Environment Agency runs from 14 September until 13 November 2020.
