This guidance covers the temporary secure storage of fly-tipped waste, and waste from trash screen clearance and public litter bins, at a site other than where it was produced, pending recovery or disposal of it elsewhere.

Taking this waste to a site to store it before collection for final recovery or disposal elsewhere, normally requires an environmental permit unless the requirements in this guidance are followed.
