Site Waste Permit

Paul Downing

A Site Waste Permit is for recycling businesses. It is also required for recycling centres. Metal recyclers and other waste treament facilities. This can include yards recycling construction and demolition waste

When deciding to apply for a site waste permit, you will need to consider the following.

  • Is my site close to a nature reserve
  • Is my site above an aquifer
  • Is my site in an air quality management area (AQMA)
  • If my site caught fire what environmental receptors are downwind
  • Is my site next to a SSSI (site of special scientific interest)
  • Is my site suitable for the operations I want to start
  • Does my site drain to the surface water or is there a sealed drainage system

The Environment Agency have a regulatory duty to protect the environment. It makes sense that in certain areas they have an exclusion zone within which you cannot recycle or treat waste. EA standard rules permits reflect these exclusions. If you do want to operate in an exclusion area. You will need to apply for a bespoke permit.
