Information To Know About Waste Management
What’s the Waste Transfer Note / Duty of Care Certification?
A duty of care along with even a waste transfer note (occasionally known as a wtn) is a legal document which any company which creates waste is needed to possess by law. Waste company provides this record as part of our service. The document functions to cover the company and the owner under the environmental protection act 1990, namely concerning trade or business waste. It serves as proof that the business/owner disposes of (or transports ) their waste legally and responsibly. The record is valid for a certain period of 1 year and must be retained by the owner/business for two years after expiry.

What type of container the waste is in?
The date and time that the waste was transferred
where the transfer took place

What is excess weight?
As a result of the waste landfill taxation, waste is measured in weight not volume. Whenever your contract starts, we’ll send you your duty of care record, this will indicate your maximum weight allowance. Whenever your bin has been gathered it will be automatically weighed against the support supplier, they will get rid of the weight of the actual bin out of their calculations and check the weight of your waste against your weight allowance. In the event the weight in the bin surpasses the weight allowance, excessive charges will happen. In the event the contents of your bin exceed your maximum weight allowance you will be charged an additional amount. If you are frequently exceeding your weight allowance, we’ll advise that you raise your support by choosing either a bigger bin or simply by having more frequent selections. Please note. Just because your bin may just seem ‘half complete ‘, it might still be overweight depending on the weight of the waste contained inside.
