Ensure you put the Right Waste in the Right Place

October 24, 2016   //   No Comments

Environment Agency officers recently ran waste checks on vehicles in the North East.  They checked vehicles to ensure they had a valid licence to carry waste, that vehicles were properly maintained, waste was secured to prevent escape and was transferred with the correct paperwork.  Officers also gathered information on waste vehicle movements, waste carriers, and measures to prevent litter escape.

The activity is part of the ‘right waste, right place’ national campaign, launched to help businesses understand what is expected of them. Run by the Environmental Services Association (ESA), the campaign is supported by the Environment Agency and Chartered Institution for Wastes Management (CIWM) and offers practical advice on how to manage waste safely and efficiently.
