Legislation and Duty of Care
Let Ward Recycling handle all your recycling needs
Most UK legislation impacting on waste management is now implemented as a result of European Directives. The European Union's waste legislation comprises three main elements:
- horizontal legislation, establishing the overall framework for the management of wastes, including definitions and principles
- legislation on treatment operations, such as landfill or incineration, which may set technical standards for the operation of waste facilities
- legislation on specific waste streams, such as waste oil or batteries, which may include for example measures to increase recycling or to reduce hazardousness
