T9 Waste Exemption

Paul Downing

The T9 waste exemption allows small scale operators to recover scrap metal. There are conditions on the volumes waste codes and treatments that you can apply. Many small scale operators have operated under the T9 exemption for years.

If you wish to continue operating after 2024 you will need to apply for an environmental permit. The T9 exemption is not the only exemption that is being removed, many are having their conditions changed.

The S2 exemption is being changed to ensure sealed drainage systems are put in place.

The Environment Agency have realised that the exemption system has been abused for many years by some operators. It is for this reason that there is a whole scale review of the waste exemption system.

Although we do not help with waste exemptions. Because, you can do that yourself on the EA website. We do help companies wishing to make the step up to applying for an environmental permit.

There is a new small scale standard rules permit that might suffice if you are currently operating under a T9 waste exemption.

Call us for an informal discussion therefore if this exemption change is relevant to you. We can talk you through the options of applying for an environmental permit.
