When you transfer waste, to comply with the regulations, you can use:

  • paper waste transfer notes (including season tickets)
  • consignment notes (including multiple collections)
  • an electronic handset

You normally, sign and hand over paper copies or obtain a digital signature in person.

  • obtain a digital signature on a handset

You must still comply with all other waste transfer requirements.
