EWC Codes

The Legal Requirement

•The European Waste Catalogue codes are transposed into UK law through The List of Wastes (LOW) Regulations.
•The use of these codes is a legal requirement of the Duty of Care (DoC) legislation across the UK.
•The DoC requires that a waste holder (producer, carrier or disposer) takes all reasonable steps to ensure that waste is described in a way that permits its     safe handling and management and that any transfer of waste is accompanied by a written description of the waste including a LOW code.
•In addition to the code, any waste should also be described in a way that identifies any properties relevant to its handling.
•This search facility is based on information published by the Environment Agency in their List of Wastes Guide.
•PLEASE NOTE: THOSE HANDLING WASTE ARE LEGALLY LIABLE TO USE THE RIGHT EWC CODE. INFORMATION ON THIS SITE IS PROVIDED IN GOOD FAITH USING THE MOST RECENT EA GUIDANCE, BUT DOWN TO EARTH RECYCLING LTD CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY ENFORCEMENT ACTION THAT MAY BE TAKEN IN RELATION TO THE USE OF THESE CODES
