Defra and Welsh Government have released “A consultation on proposals to tackle waste crime and poor performance in the waste sector and introduce a new fixed penalty for the waste duty of care.” The consultation includes a number of proposals regarding permitted sites, as well as a number of specific proposals to amend some waste exemptions. Please be aware that if you currently operate under a waste exemption the consultation includes proposals which may have a significant impact on your current operations.

The deadline for responses was 26 March 2018. Valpak produced a summary document of this consultation, which was emailed to Valpak members. If you are not a Valpak member or you have misplaced our email, please enter your details below to receive a copy:
