Duty of Care Waste Transfer Notes….. what’s the point?

As the end of March is approaching, we have re-issued all of our Duty of Care documents to our customers. I want to use this blog to emphasise the importance of the Duty of Care document and the purpose of it within the waste management process.

“A Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note (WTN) is a document that must be completed when waste is transferred from one party to another. If a Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note is not completed during the transfer of waste you are almost certainly breaking the law and could face a fine. A Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note ensures there is a clear paper trail from when the waste is produced until it is disposed of. You must keep your waste transfer notes for at least two years and be able to produce them on demand to the Environment Agency or local authority”.

So, in a nutshell, this document is vital for the waste management for your business and you can be closed down without it. Please store it safely, also note that we do file a copy of it on our records Unlike a lot of the waste companies out there, Lili Waste is the only one of the multi depot companies that supply this free of charge for Business Waste producers.
