Home \ Environment & Buildings \ Waste streams \ Hazardous Waste

Some wastes have special controls on their handling, transport and disposal and are known as ‘hazardous wastes’, such as: asbestos, batteries, chemicals and oil.

Since 15 May 2007, if you produce hazardous waste on your farm you have to comply with the rules on hazardous waste. In summary:

  • Know what hazardous waste you are producing
  • Give it to someone that is authorised to handle it safely and make sure it is disposed of at a properly authorised site
  • Use a consignment note every time you or someone else removes hazardous waste from your farm.
