You may need a permit to treat, recover or get rid of farm waste. Some low-risk activities are exempt if you’re registered. You can register with the Environment Agency’s online exemptions service.

There is no charge to register, but you must meet certain conditions.
To register, you’ll need:
- your name and address
- the registered address and number of your limited company, if you have one
- the address where the exempt activity is being carried out
- the reference numbers for the exemptions you’re registering - read the guidance
If you can’t provide a postcode for the place where the exempt activity is taking place you will need a 12-digit grid reference.
