Waste Recycling Permit

Paul Downing

In order to run a successful waste transfer station you will need a waste recycling permit from the Environment Agency in order to be able to operate.

The waste recycling permit or environmental permit states the conditions under which you can operate such as tonnages allowed, types of waste you can import and the treatment activities you can undertake. It is quite a lengthy process getting a permit and you should allow up to 4-5 months for a Standard Rules Permit and longer if you are applying for a bespoke operation.

Waste recycling permits for non-hazardous and inert activities are relatively straight forward to apply for but permits for hazardous activities are slightly more complicated due to the additional risk assessments required in order to ensure that no harm to the environment occurs.

Paul Downing & Associates have years of experience in helping businesses apply for and obtain permits for all sorts of industrial activity including waste transfer stations and recycling centres.
