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This RPS will be withdrawn on 1 November 2018.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
