Classifying waste wood from mixed waste wood sources: RPS 207

When treated or mixed waste wood can be classified as non-hazardous waste wood.



If you comply with the conditions in this regulatory position statement (RPS), you do not need to apply a hazardous waste classification for waste wood from mixed waste wood sources.

This RPS will be withdrawn on 1 November 2018. This will give the waste wood industry time to do both of the following:

  • deliver a code of practice which meets the legal requirements to assess and classify waste wood as approved by the Environment Agency
  • implement compliance with that code of practice
