Use the user guide to:

  • access the IsItWaste tool
  • do a self assessment to help you decide whether your material is likely to be waste
  • ask the Environment Agency Definition of Waste Panel for an opinion (this option is currently suspended as the Definition of Waste Panel is temporarily closed)

The Definition of Waste Panel is temporarily closed to new submissions while we review the service.

The IsItWaste tool is for England only as it’s based on English case law. Northern Ireland and Wales may have similar tools.
