Waste exemption changes to prevent crime in the waste sector

One of the ways to stop crime in the waste sector is through working with Government to improve the regulatory system to make it harder for crime to be possible.

Proposed changes to the waste exemptions regime will bring protection to legitimate businesses in the waste industry, because we know that some types of waste exemptions have been routinely used by unscrupulous operators to hide illegal waste activities from regulatory control, whilst providing a veil of legitimacy.

Check what is changing and get yourself ready for change, as you may need to restrict your waste activity, get a permit or stop altogether.
