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This RPS will be withdrawn on 30 September 2019. 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
