Consultation description

This consultation is about 3 new standard rules permits. They are for waste operators who carry out the treatment of:

  • waste mattresses for recovery
  • waste paper, cardboard and plastic for recovery
  • waste tyres for recovery

Currently you can register a waste exemption for these activities. But government may change the law to require operators of these kinds of waste sites to have an environmental permit. We’re developing these standard permits in readiness.

The consultation also includes revisions to existing standard rules sets. See the consultation document for the details.
