Understanding the requirements of the Waste Regulations 2011 (amended 2012)

A route map has been developed by a working group comprising members of the local authority waste networks, coordinated through the London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB), the Waste Network Chairs (WNC), and WRAP. It is available to help individual local authorities assess their compliance with the Regulations.

Critical aspects of the Regulations come into force from 1 January 2015 and local authorities will need to have evaluated their individual compliance before this date. The route map is a decision support tool which provides a clear, step by step process for local authorities to follow to help decide whether they are compliant or need to consider making changes to their service.


Note: the Route Map is not guidance and has been prepared for general information only.
