Waste management consultancy regulations

The laws that apply to waste and its disposal are complex, varied and ever-changing. Fortunately, with advice from our waste management consultants and dedicated account managers, we ensure that you meet all the regulations that apply to you.

The duty of care regulations apply to all businesses handling waste. they state that as a waste holder you must take all reasonable steps to:

Prevent unauthorised or harmful deposit, treatment or disposal of waste

Ensure that all waste is disposed of with a business or individuals that have the correct and relevant environmental permit issued but the environmental agency like Recycling Lives Services

Prevent other parties from breaching permit conditions relevant to the type of waste they process

Provide an accurate description of the waste when it is transferred to another business or individual

Retain waste documentation about non-hazardous waste for two years

In addition, any waste holder must ensure that waste is transferred to a business or individual like recycling lives that is:

  • Registered as a carrier, broker or dealer of waste
  • A waste management operator with an environmental permit or registered exemption to accept such waste.


What is waste management consultancy?
Waste disposal and recycling companies like recycling lives offer waste management consultancy services to help your business operate in the most efficient way possible. Waste consultants will perform a waste audit of your business, analyse the ways that your waste disposal processes can be improved and provide cost-effective solutions tailored to your needs.
What is WAMITAB?
A WAMITAB qualification demonstrates the level of knowledge and skill needed to ensure that a waste site complies with environmental permitting regulations (2007). There are several levels of WAMITAB courses, the highest of which is a level 4, often referred to as the certificate of technical competence (cotc). Our waste management consultants are all WAMITAB accredited.
