Duty of care
- consider alternatives to disposal - eg recycling and re-use
- store your waste safely and securely
- fill in a waste transfer note for each load of waste you transport
- usually get a licence to transport, store, treat, recover or dispose of your waste yourself
- check that any business you use to deal with your waste is licensed, and keep proof of this - eg take a copy of their licence
You have extra responsibilities if you're dealing with hazardous (special) waste.
