Low risk waste positions: transport, vehicles, vehicle parts and metal

The Environment Agency has provided these low risk waste positions (LRWPs) for waste operations that it considers may be suitable for an exemption.



If the Environment Agency provides a LRWP for an activity, you can carry it out without an environmental permit for a waste operation provided that you meet all the conditions.

The Environment Agency may review its LRWPs. It may decide the activity is no longer suitable for a LRWP or that the conditions need changing. You must regularly check that the LRWP you are benefiting from is still in place.
