Are you unsure what EWC Means? Do you know which code to use? If you answer no to these questions then you need educating.

Any controlled waste that is collected in the UK must, under Duty of Care, be covered by a Waste Transfer Note or, for Hazardous/Special Waste, a Consignment Note.

One of the requirements of these documents is to describe the waste. This will require some written description that will vary according to the waste carrier, but it will always require a EWC code. This is a list of wastes that has been produced by the EU to standardise the description of waste across Europe and to enable waste to be recorded, monitored and controlled more effectively.

We can offer training on how to use the EWC Catalogue and determine the correct codes you require to describe the wastes that you’re handling.
