The Environment Agency (EA) has produced new guidance to improve the way that permitted facilities in the non-hazardous and inert waste sector are operated and designed.
The aim is to ensure that standards are clear, consistent and enforceable and will apply to existing and new facilities including household waste recycling centres, waste transfer stations, materials recycling facilities and sites producing soil and aggregates. The EA is launching a formal consultation into this new guidance and welcome feedback from stakeholders. They will review the feedback and alter the guidance if appropriate.
The consultation closes on 13th November 2020 and is available here.
