Over the past years more and more Legislation has been introduced for the disposal of waste. Employers have a legal duty to ensure that all hazardous waste is disposed of correctly following the Duty of Care procedures. Certain waste such as soiled sanitary dressings, nappies, clinical waste and needles need to be disposed of in a safe and correct manner.
We have a team of highly trained staff that will advise you on the correct documentation for the disposal of sanitary waste, nappy waste, clinical waste and needles.
All of our customers receive a "Duty of Care"/”Waste Transfer Note” and this document certifies that your waste is being handled and disposed of in the correct manner. The Waste Transfer Note should describe on both in words and by reference to the appropriate European Waste Code, quantity and types of each different waste being transferred. This document is a legal requirement and should be kept for two years.
"Duty of care" is a responsibility and applies to any person, who produces, imports, carries, keeps, treats or disposes of controlled waste in their working environment. Individuals must ensure that the waste they produce is handled and disposed of in a secure and correct manner. This is a legal responsibility and breaching of the duty of care is a criminal offence.
The Water Industries Act 1991
No items should be flushed that could cause a blockage within the sewer or drain
Water By-Law 83, states that, where urinals are installed there must be a method of controlling the flushing mechanism to eliminate waste water.
