WELCOME TO ‘RIGHT WASTE, RIGHT PLACE’


EVERY ESTABLISHMENT OR BUSINESS THAT PRODUCES WASTE RIGHT ACROSS THE UNITED KINGDOM HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY TO MANAGE IT PROPERLY.  THIS WEBSITE WILL HELP YOU COMPLY WITH THE LAW.

 

This website has been created to offer you practical advice with meeting your ‘Duty of Care‘ obligations under Section 34 of the Environment Protection Act 1990.[1]

You should give this your attention.  Environmental regulations state that every establishment or business that produces waste, no matter where it is based, has the responsibility for managing it properly.

That means you!

If you do not do so, for whatever reason, your establishment or business is at risk of prosecution with the possibility of a fine if found guilty in court. [2]

YOUR DUTY OF CARE


WE CAN help you put the right waste in the right place

 

Recent research suggests that 90% of those organisations who are currently breaking the law are SMEs, with 0-50 employees. [3]

Mostly this is because they don’t know what their establishment or business needs to do to fully comply with its duty of care obligations.

If that is the case with you, this website will help you understand more about your Duty of Care obligations. It will literally help you put the right waste in the right place, so you can make yourself compliant with the minimum of fuss. The information on this site is designed to be practical and useful; for example we have included a simple Need to Know cards on common items discarded as waste, giving at a glance advice on how to dispose of them.
