Waste Management

The Waste Management Licensing Regulations 1994 apply to those persons involved in the collection, storage, treatment and disposal of controlled wastes. The regulations dictate the licensing of persons or businesses involved in the management of waste and relate directly to the licensing of a site or activity to carry out the management, processing and disposal of wastes.

Any organisation processing, recycling, dismantling and refurbishing computer IT waste must hold the relevant waste management permits and licences.

Licensing is carried out by the Environment Agency (EA) and 3 main sectors are taken into consideration which are financial stability / security, previous history / offences and technical competence.

Specifically for WEEE waste management, the facility must be contained within a building with impermeable concrete floor and no activities are permitted to be undertaken outside of the demise of the treatment facility. All activities which will be carried out must be disclosed to the EA.
