Do I need to register my premises?

Businesses that meet certain criteria are required by law to register with the Environment Agency as a Producer of Hazardous Waste. As a basic guide, please check below to see if you are required to register your premises. This is intended as a guide only and therefore you should contact us in order to confirm your status. Alternatively you can contact the Environment Agency directly for further guidance.

Offices, Shops, Household Premises (including Schools, Residential/Nursing Homes and Charities), Places of Worship, Dentists, Vets, Medical Practices

As general rule if a registered waste carrier or a carrier exempt from registration collects all hazardous waste from your premises and you produce less than 200kg of hazardous waste per year, then you are not required to register with the environment agency.

Factories, Warehouses, Storage Facilities etc

These types of premises must register with the Environment Agency as a Producer of Hazardous Waste.
