Waste transport

The Environmental Protection Act 1990 and associated regulations impose responsibilities on all involved in the production, keeping, treatment, transport and disposal of controlled waste. Section 34 requires all persons involved to act with a ‘duty of care’. This means that waste materials produced as part of a business or within a workplace are regulated by law and are subject to the duty of care provisions.
