Know Your Duty?

What is meant by Duty of Care?

If you produce, store, transport, treat or dispose of hazardous waste you have a Duty of Care to ensure that it is managed correctly, otherwise large financial penalities can be issued.

How can you fulfill your Duty of Care obligations?

  • Store it safely and securely
  • Ensure that your chosen waste carrier is fully licensed to handle your waste
  • Complete waste transfer notes to document all the waste you transfer
  • Keep records of all the waste you transfer for at least 2 years

You can find more information at The Environment Agency website, where you can read in detail about your obligations to implement a Duty of Care strategy.
